DO you have a question about how rural issues are being dealt with by the police? Cambridgeshire people are being given the opportunity to ask questions on issues facing the countryside at a rural question time.
The event is being run by police in partnership with Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue, Countryside Watch, Department of Communities and Local Government and the Environment Health Services.
James Paice MP, Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Rural Affairs, will chair the question time, to be held on Thursday, February 8 at Burgess Hall, S Ives (7-9pm).
During the evening the public will have the chance to quiz a number of key representatives, including Chief Constable Julie Spence and Chief Fire Officer Tom Carroll.
The rural community make up the majority of the population of Cambridgeshire and it is vital we are aware of issues that concern them.
The event is about giving people the chance to ask questions about issues facing the rural community.

I would encourage anyone who wants to know more about the rural community and the work of each of the agencies to come along.
