A new ‘Meet the Mayor’ initiative has been launched, which will see Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones out and about in the community.

The sessions will be held across the borough over the next year.

Locals will be able to meet the Mayor and talk to her one-to-one about how the council serves them, what it does well and what improvements could be made.

Mrs Jones said: “This is quite literally ‘doorstep democracy’ where I go out and hear from people in communities about what matters to them.”

The first session is on July 22 at Bentley Pavilion from 9am to 12 noon. To attend, email or call 734189.

Mayor Jones will hold sessions monthly, and venues and times will be confirmed quarterly. The first round dates and venues are:

July 22, 9am-12 noon – Bentley Pavilion, Askern Road, Bentley, DN5 0HU

August 22, 2pm-5pm – Holmescarr Centre, Grange Lane, Rossington, DN11 0LP

August 27, 9am–12 noon – Cantley Community Centre, Goodison Boulevard, Cantley, DN4 6DF

September 16, 2pm-5pm – Ivanhoe Centre, Gardens Lane, Conisbrough, DN12 3JX
