    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.

    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.

    Thank you to everyone who joined us on Thursday 13 July 2017 for our Politics and a Pint evening at the Raglan Pub on Dunchurch Road.

    We all like campaigning but sometimes it's nice to sit down and chat in a relaxed environment.

    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.
