    Wokingham Borough Council is currently consulting on it's Arts & Culture strategy. We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey which can be found here - https://www.wokingham.gov.uk/.../current-consultations/.... The deadline for responses is 20th November.
    Most of the questions are straight forward, but it's best to keep in mind that this is a longer term strategy that will go beyond the restrictions we face due to Covid. It's also an arts & culture strategy, so if you can have a think about the broad spectrum of cultural activities as well as artistic/creative ones, that would be very helpful to the team putting this together. It's worth considering activities/events that either you are directly involved in, such as a book club or a community choir, or that you like to experience, such as watching something at the cinema or the theatre.

    Wokingham Liberal Democrats are pleased that the issue of poverty is finally on the Council's agenda. Cllr Sarah Kerr, Liberal Democrat member for Evendons Ward said "for too long the issue of poverty and the inequalities associated with it have gone under the radar in Wokingham Borough. The narrative being pushed out there is that Wokingham is one of the least deprived authorities in the country and levels of poverty are relatively low. What this says to me is, 'we're doing OK,' but the truth is we're not. Wokingham Borough Council is benchmarking against other authorities in a country where poverty levels are increasing and social mobility is decreasing, and this was pre-Covid. How can over 7,000 children in this Borough be living in poverty and 3,500 households in fuel poverty be seen as 'we're doing OK?' This is why the Liberal Democrats requested this pressing issue is brought to the forefront and meaningful strategies and actions to effectively tackle poverty in our Borough discussed."

    I refer to your article on the introduction of the non-hessian hessian sacks, published in the paper dated 17th September 2020. The Borough Council leader John Halsall is quoted as saying that if the Lib Dems wanted more information "I would have given it to them - they just had to ask for it."

    I therefore refer to my written question, submitted on Monday 7th September to the Executive Committee meeting scheduled for 11th September, which was well within the deadline for questions.
