#ThrowBackThursday – County Council Elections 2017

It doesn’t seem possible but it is 6 months since the Warwickshire County Council Elections. The number of Councillors reduced to 57 from 62 following a boundary review and the results saw 21 new Councillors join Warwickshire County Council.

We asked new and returning Councillors to let us know how they were feeling 6 months in.

Councillor John Holland was re-elected and has enjoyed watching plans he made before the election being put into practice and move forward.

Councillor Judy Falp is one of the new, independent members of the Council and says –

“What an interesting six months. Many new faces to get to know, lots of training opportunities and my first over five hours meeting! I am pleased with the results I have been able to achieve for the residents of my division. I am yet to make my maiden speech at full council but I am almost certain that will soon be rectified. Thanks to many for making me feel welcome but especially democratic services for all their help.”

The Democratic Services team has enjoyed working with new and returning members and is looking forward to what the next 6 months brings.

The other key area this time is Dementia Awareness. In Warwickshire, there are estimated to be approximately 7,500 people living with dementia and this is likely to rise to over 11,000 people in the next ten years. Most of us will be affected in some way by dementia during our lifetime.

Raising awareness of dementia, creating dementia friendly communities and supporting people to live well with dementia are key aims of Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy (2016-2019).

A presentation will be made to detail some of the key achievements to date and to outline priorities for future work.
