Last week the six scrutiny committees met, Tuesday to Thursday, at 10am and 2pm slots. Once again, Team SF (“Scrutiny Fabulous”) did a great job in giving summaries/detailed accounts of what was said, what was not said etc. For a summary of summaries, see Chloe Jeffries’ post here.
This week sees meetings of the Schools Forum (4pm, Monday) and the Health and Wellbeing Board (Wednesday 10am).
