In Wychavon we have 3 MP’s covering the district. Sir Michael Spicer MP, ( West Worcestershire) Peter Luff MP ( Mid Worcestershire ) and Jacqui Smith MP ( Redditch, Inkberrow, Feckenham and Cookhill ) The council, individual officers and members, keep in close touch with their MP’s. Ongoing discussions involving the district often include our MP’s, they have vital and sometimes a unique contribution to make. Each year around this time, a formal catch up meeting is held, with all members of the senior management team, executive board, chairman and vice chairman.
