    Following the Government's announcement, Warwickshire moved into Tier 4 from 00:01 on Thursday 31 December 2020.

    Moving to Tier 4 means that everyone must stay at home unless they have a 'reasonable excuse' such as work, education, childcare or essential activities set out in Government guidance. Adhering to the restrictions is crucial; we need Warwickshire's residents to continue to do the right thing to contain the virus, help our hospitals and protect clinically extremely vulnerable residents while the vaccination programme continues to roll out.

    My name is Stephen Pimm and I will be standing as your candidate in this area for the Liberal Democrats in the Warwickshire County Council elections in May.I live in the area and I am very keen to understand your concerns and views. Standing for election is important to me. The Lockdowns and Covid pandemic has shown how many people are isolated and struggling to cope. Rugby Foodbank has been extremally busy as have local support groups and charities providing welfare. I passionately believe that we must provide for a caring and greener community.

    Rugby Liberal Democrats are supporting the Stand up for Carers campaign beginning with a call to raise Carer's Allowance.

    Across the country, 900,000 full-time unpaid carers rely on Carer's Allowance, but at just £67.25 a week, it is not nearly enough.

    More than a third of those on Carer's Allowance are struggling to make ends meet. Many have been struggling for months, often relying on foodbanks to feed themselves and the people they care for.
