Staffordshire TSA meeting postponed

The Trust Special Administrators have decided to postpone the dates and venues of the public meetings organised for this week in Stafford and Cannock, following discussions with Staffordshire Police about access and safety.

TSA Alan Bloom met with Staffordshire Police following overwhelming demand for places.

He agreed that although venues had been booked to hold 500 people in total over both nights, it would not be enough to meet the needs of local people wanting to attend.

So the decision was taken to postpone the meetings to ensure public safety and better access. The meetings will now be held at the Staffordshire County Showground at 7pm on 30th April and another to be confirmed.

The new venue will hold at least 700 people each night or 1,400 in total.
