Residents turn out for an informal vote at Cromer’s community open day
Cromer residents were invited to take part in an informal vote at the town's community open day yesterday (Saturday).
Held in the Parish Hall on Church Street, participants received five mini �5 notes and were asked to share them between eight categories.
These included promotion of the town, supporting heritage, safety and tidiness, providing grants, encouraging and sustaining the environment, improving and maintaining the town or only doing what they must do and other suggestions.
The idea of the vote was to reflect what residents thought the town council should be prioritising spending on.
Councillor Marion Saunders said the aim was to get an 'idea' of what residents wanted and that the results of the vote would be at the next Cromer Town Council meeting on April 16.
