Residents in Cumbria have been invited to take part in a virtual 'Meet the Council' event.

The discussion has been organised by Cumbria CVS, and it will take place on September 21 between 3:00pm to 4:30pm.

The online call is an opportunity for charities and the public to meet their councillors and put questions to them.

The key topics that the council will talk about include public health, charity funding and support for local charitable organisations.

Prepared questions have already been drawn up for the councillors, though participants will have the chance to speak to them directly through break-out room sessions.
