Following on from last weeks’ notice about “The Flu jab” I had mine yesterday at Layes Lane Pharmacy in Kenilworth” which was most convenient.
Remember they can do this which saves a visit to your GP , it’s worth also noting that these days Pharmacies’ can competently deal with a wide variety of things and ailments in a professional and competent way all of which eases the pressures on our hard pressed GPS, and if they think you really need to go to the GP they will tell you.
So for relatively minor elements or just good advice your local pharmacy is the place to go.
Its that time of year again, the days get shorter, the nights longer and the weather colder.
More importantly it Flu Vaccination time both Cllr Trevor Wright and Cllr Pam Redford have had theirs and if your in the affected group or have some one who is , its really important that you get this protection.
There are different types for different age groups and one of the best things is you can now have it at your local pharmacy as indeed Cllr Trevor does (and his wife) so its really easy .

And if you have a elderly relative who may not use the internet speak with them about t and make sure they have had it, it will make a major difference and provide protection.
Over the coming months, you may see Laing O’Rourke and J. Murphy & Sons (LM) staff and subcontractors on HS2 sites near you, continuing with our early works for the railway. We want to give you a sense of what we will and won’t be doing in this period.
Ancient woodland sites
As HS2 confirmed in this statement, LM will not be removing ancient trees in 2019 – instead, we will continue preparing our worksites and hold off on removing trees until at least 2020. For more information, please see HS2’s statement.
LM has been instructed to continue with essential preparatory works at all of our sites in Warwickshire, which includes some non-ancient vegetation clearance, fencing, and creating site accesses.
In the sites postponed until 2020, which include Broadwells Wood, Crackley/Birches Wood and South Cubbington Wood, we will still need to work among the trees to carry out measures to protect wildlife (such as bats). This will involve some localised removal of selected tree branches for essential mitigation works to meet legal requirements for protected species, ahead of continuing our work in early 2020. However, we will not remove branches from any ‘ancient’ or ‘veteran’ trees within an ancient woodland, so as not to affect the integrity of the ancient woodlands.
We will be continuing with other clearance activities this Winter. This includes clearing shrubs, hedgerows and woodland in non-ancient sites, as well as habitat creation.
Our general clearance work in Warwickshire will begin in mid-October 2019 near Welsh Road, setting up a compound in that location. Our clearance teams will then progress north along the future route of HS2.
This work needs to continue in order to ensure that main construction work for HS2 can commence on time in future. It is also important to complete this work during this time of year, as it is outside of key periods in the ecological calendar such as bird nesting season – minimising our impact on local wildlife.
