A series of “engagement” events to discuss the future of Powys County Council are to be held throughout the area, but Newtown, the county’s largest town, has been left off the initial list.

The county council has named towns throughout north and mid Powys, including two in Welshpool, Llanfair Caereinion and Llanidloes and one in Llanidloes during February.

But Newtown has not been included.

“The multi-agency Powys Public Service Board is publishing a Draft Wellbeing Assessment as part of its response to the Welsh Government’s Wellbeing of Future Generations Act. And the board now wishes to check with local people to see if it is on the right lines,” said a council statement.

“Those people who attend the drop in events will be invited to take part in a prize draw to win a well-being hamper.”

But they’ll be no such option of winning a hamper if you live in Newtown. However, the council is likely to put on other events at some point in other communities.

“Details of events in other towns will be revealed shortly,” added the statement.

Public drop in events are taking place as follows:

• Welshpool Library: Monday 6 February, 10am-2pm
•  Coed Y Dinas, Welshpool: Wednesday 8 February; 12-4pm
• Montgomery Town Market: Thursday 9 February, 10am-12.30pm
• Llanidloes Library: Tuesday 14 February, 4-6pm
• Llanfair Caereinion Library: Tuesday 14 February, 10am-1pm
• Llanfair Caereinion Library: Thursday 16 February, 4pm-7pm
• Llanidloes Town Market, Great Oak Street: Saturday 18 February, 10am-1pm

“In addition, representatives of the board will be meeting with community groups across the county during February. And for those people who won’t be able to make the drop in events, an online survey will be available from the first week in February via,” said the statement.
