Last week, Medway Conservatives took the difficult decision not to hold this year’s Rochester Christmas Market, Dickensian Christmas Festival or Christmas light switch-on events due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On Monday Councillor David Brake (Walderslade), Portfolio Holder for Adult Services and Public Health, was delighted to take part in the Local Government Association's COVID-19 impact on obesity webinar.
Following recent announcement of the transfer of North Kent Dermatology Service away from the current provider, Councillor David Wildey, Chairman of Health and Adult Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee, said:
Medway Conservatives were bitterly disappointed by unconstructive comments from the Labour Group, relating to a reluctance to allow our children and young people to regain some much needed semblance of normality as soon as is safe to do so.
Medway Conservatives were pleased with Government’s announcement Friday afternoon that new powers have been handed to Local Authorities which enable us to temporarily hold public meetings virtually, by using either video or telephone conferencing technology.
Since the appalling announcement in September 2018 of the Joint Committee of CCGs’ decision not to place a 24/7 hyper acute stroke service here in Medway, the Conservative Group has continued to fight every step of the way to see the service retained at Medway Maritime Hospital.
