A local council held a community gathering on Saturday night, encouraging members of their municipality to join them for a night to meet their councillors, take in some music and have a drink or two with neighbours.
Put on through a collaboration between the municipality of Thorne and the Thorne Community Recreation Association (TCRA), the council wanted to host their constituents to demonstrate their commitment to openness and communication.
“This gives people a chance to meet the new councillors, all five of them, and see how everyone is working together,” said Thorne Mayor Karen Kelly.
