Residents across Braintree, Halstead and Witham are being invited to public meetings in a bid to tackle major issues affecting their communities.

The All In Alliances, created by Eastlight Community Homes, will meet in December to address issues that directly affect their local community.

At the meetings, which all start at 6pm, residents will decide on a campaign using funding and support from the housing association to combat issues ranging from the cost of living to parking.

In Braintree, the meeting will be on Monday, December 5, at St Paul’s Church while the Halstead meeting is on Tuesday, December 6 at Queen’s Hall.

The Witham meeting is on Thursday, December 8, at Witham Public Hall.

The meetings are free to attend and residents will receive a small gift and be entered into a prize draw for a Wilkin and Sons Christmas hamper.

Eastlight’s Lauren Brimson said: “Residents across each town are facing an ongoing battle with the cost-of-living crisis, loneliness and parking.

“We’ll provide funding and support, so if you’ve got ideas or projects that you believe will help local people, then please come along and share your thoughts.”
