Western Bay Mayor Ross Paterson says two weeks on the road talking to the people of the Western Bay has been a great experience.

Councillors and staff took a 1960s Bedford school bus around 17 destinations in the district during the last two weeks of July.

Twenty-three staff, 12 councillors and 10 community board members hit the road - travelling nearly 1000km and chatting with more than 1500 people.

Mr Paterson said he learned more about what issues were important to people.
