GREENOCK people are invited to an important community consultation event.

The Our Place Our Future initiative for Greenock East & Central wants to hear the views of local people.

The team has received £30,000 from the European Social Fund and they have been speaking to residents to hear how they would like to see their neighbourhoods develop.

These conversations will continue until the end of the month and an event is being held on March 26.

Programme manager Bill Clements said: “People from different generations and walks of life are already having their say, with hot topics ranging from poverty, loneliness and health, to intergenerational activities, depopulation and employment.

“We are urging people who live or work in Greenock East and Central and haven’t already participated to take this opportunity, join the conversation and have their say.”

The event will take place in the Broomhill Hub between 1 and 5pm.

A free creche is available by calling Enterprise Childcare on 745552.

Free transport is also available by calling CVS Inverclyde on 711733.

Refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.

Any community group or businesses who would like to find out more about the consultation should call community engagement officer Patricia Compston on 728628 or email
