Weekly review: 28th January 2021
A round-up of this week's stories and events for the weekend
This week we reported on how our two local MPs voted in the Universal Credit uplift debate. We explored how there’s a new off-road cycle route planned that’ll help connect Leamington and Rugby, and we shared a Thurlaston resident’s worry about night-time lighting affecting local wildlife. We also looked in detail at the upcoming local elections.
