SOLIHULL MP Lorely Burt is planning an eight-week programme called 'Listening to Solihull.'
The aim of the programme is to give local residents the chance to raise any concerns they may have about their community with the Liberal Democrat MP.
The programme includes 'knock and drop' surveys to be delivered to thousands of homes across Solihull and Shirley, to discover local issues and concerns residents may have.
Lorely plans to hold supermarket surgeries where locals can talk to their MP about any issues or questions they have, whilst doing the weekly shop.
Speaking about the eight-week programme, the MP said: "Life can be very hectic, rushing backwards and forwards from Solihull to Westminster, so the Summer recess gives me a real opportunity to spend more time listening and talking to people locally.
She added: People tell me they are fed up with politicians always trying to tell them what is best for them. By taking the time over the summer not only to talk, but to listen to people, I feel sure that I will be better equipped to represent my constituents both here and in Westminster."
