    At a recent full Council meeting, Paddox Liberal Democrats Councillor Tim Douglas raised the issue of upgrading changing room facilities at playing fields in Rugby.

    Some of these facilities are suffering from vandalism and are in a very poor state, such as at GEC field, Whinfield Rec and Featherbed Lane.

    Warwickshire County Council (WCC) is currently undertaking a review of the concessionary travel scheme within Warwickshire. They have put together a survey to collect information about how people use their bus pass, and to collect any comments people may have about the current scheme.

    The service was last reviewed in 2012, so WCC are undertaking a new review to find out how customers across Warwickshire use their bus passes and help WCC to decide whether they should consider changing the current discretionary elements of the scheme.

    Lots of issues were talked about including who will be the next leader of the Liberal Democrats, Mrs May's Government, the Trump Presidency and local issues from roads, houses and Council services.
