Feedback received after the event included:

Thank you to everyone who made the Annual Town Meeting happen. I think it worked brilliantly so well done to you all.

Well done to you all. Got to say I found it so much easier listening whilst keeping little one entertained. Certainly, a better way for some to listen to what’s been going on and what is happening.

This meeting was a great way to hear about our town.

Lovely to hear some friendly voices. What a very informative meeting. I hope it can always be held like this in future. Well done ETC.

Well done for Annual Town Meeting last night.  From the “watcher” point of view it worked just fine – lots of information from all the speakers. It was interesting as catch-up on the past year.

Really informative meeting – great to hear the finances so well explained. Glad you and volunteers all got a mention – the council have been outstanding this year.
