Its that miserable time of the year when the weather changes the days get shorter and the nights longer and its time for your FLU JAB, I myself (Cllr Wright) along with my wife have had ours and I know Cllr Redford plans the same.
But what about you ?
Do you think its not important and it doesn't help?
Well that's a bit of a myth particularly if your over 65 or at risk due to a long term health condition.
Its easy these days too , in fact we have ours done at the local pharmacy.
If your unsure follow the link below for more information.
It really does make a difference.
dementia carers count
We will be continuing our theme covering Dementia in the next week or so but particularly focusing on The carers , the often forgotten hero's who give so much to loved ones often without recognition and support.
To start by following the link below you will find information that you may find helpful
We had the pleasure last week to meet with the organisation to understand what they do and how they can support and what their long terms development plans are which we will cover in more depth in the coming months.
Yesterday I was very humbled to be asked to present and support the celebrations at St Marys Cubbington having achieved the status of being the FIRST church In Leamington to receive a Silver Eco-Church Award and only the 3rd to receive such an award in the Coventry Diocese.
This has been no easy task when you consider the church dates back of 900 years !
However unfazed by this the whole church community led by Tricia West has worked hard to get to this level by implementing various cohesive yet simple changes, congratulations on a terrific achievement.
If you want to know more you can by following the link below or go to our "useful links page" on our web site.

Warwickshire County Council seeking views on health and wellbeing in your area
A survey has been launched by Warwickshire County Council (WCC) to find out more about the health and wellbeing outcomes, and the factors that affect them,
Warwickshire County Council (WCC) and public sector partners recognise that the needs of different communities throughout the county will vary depending on issues such as the population age, infrastructure, community safety, jobs, housing and many more.
To understand this more fully the survey forms part of a larger project to gain more insight into life in Warwickshire’s communities called the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (“JSNA”). and together with other data the survey results will feed into a local needs assessment, which will lead to recommendations for improving local health and wellbeing.
All of this available information will be used by WCC and its partners when commissioning new services or reviewing existing ones., additionally the information will also be available to local voluntary and community groups, to support funding applications to support the community
Please take the opportunity to complete the survey and help to inform this important piece of work by following this link
