    Local Liberal Democrats campaigners Lee Chase and Abigail Sawyer are concerned that there is no safe place to cross for children going to Cawston Grange Primary School.

    Calvestone Road needs a safe place for children to cross on the way to school.

    At either end of the school day, cars that park in this area using the footpath blocking visibility, especially for younger children, and there have been some very near misses.

    More needs to be done with funding for a new programme of safer routes to school with 20mph limits. Liberal Democrats have long championed the safer routes scheme across Warwickshire and want to see it utilised in Rugby.

    On Thursday 6 May 2021, residents have the opportunity to vote for Councillors to represent their local area. Here's why you should vote for the Liberal Democrats.

    During the pandemic, the Liberal Democrats team have supported residents and worked with community and voluntary groups across Rugby. Covid-19 has challenged us all and changed how we live and work. It has, however, also provided opportunities that we need to take advantage of. We must put mental health and families first along with accelerating our actions in tackling climate change. Our task as politicians is to lead our communities and build the foundations for the next generation. Liberal Democrats are calling for a Fairer, Caring and Greener Rugby. This builds upon the work that we have been doing in the Town Hall such as investigating a Town Council for Rugby under proposals for local government reform, protecting our green spaces, introducing a Private Rented Sector Charter to help tenants and support landlords, supporting volunteering and community groups, and a plastic free Council.
