Before elections (purdah)
In the six weeks running up to an election, councils have to be very careful about what they say. Whatever type of election, if you post anything which could be interpreted as supporting a party or candidate during the pre-election period we may have to delete it.
Our social media pages are monitored Monday to Friday.
We will not be able to respond to questions or complaints outside of these hours, even if we are posting from our accounts. If you have an urgent query please use the council’s contact us page.

Came for the free activity over school holidays, daughter loved taking part in this. She then insisted on staying to explore the museum. The backpacks are a good idea to engage children while looking at the displays. The hands on play area where you can put a vase back together was her favourite part. The staff were friendly.
