    Ludlow Dementia Action Alliance is holding the meeting at Hagley Place (next to Coop service station) on the 30th August to discuss the next phase of making Ludlow a more dementia friendly town.

    Cllr Viv Parry, chairman of the group, said: " It is estimated that there are around 73,500 people in the West Midlands who have dementia. In Ludlow we have a higher proportion of elderly residents than most of Shropshire and we need to take action now to support residents affected by this condition. Some 30 businesses and interested parties have beeninvited to this meeting to discuss how we can work together to make Ludlow dementia friendly.

    "Over the last six months we have produced a leaflet written by Mike Beazley administrator which explains how we work with other groups to help carers and dementia sufferers but there is much more to be done.

    In addition we have invited George Rook Chair Shropshire Telford &Wrekin Action Alliance and Kat Horner Dementia Friendly Communities Officer for the -West Midlands to join us at our 11th September meeting to talk about other towns who are working the same way to become Dementia Friendly.

    From the Daily Mail, 15th August 2018:

    Clarifications and corrections

    A sub-heading within an article on 13 April about an inquiry into disgraced MP Cyril Smith may have suggested that ex-Rochdale MP Liz Lynne ignored accusations of abuse.

    In fact, the inquiry concluded it could not make any findings about the truth or accuracy of claims made against Miss Lynne, and that it would be unfair to do so, as it did not seek live evidence from Miss Lynne.

    Ludlow South Shropshire Councillor Vivienne Parry has called on the Ministry of Transport to urgently rethink its proposed threat to voluntary drivers as it emerged that the voluntary sector is the play a big part in the new health structure in the County.

    Cllr Parry said "Future Fit is currently developing its transport strategy for the new health care structure in the County. Given the very rural nature of our County and the repeated cutbacks in bus services, minibus and car services run by voluntary organisations are going to play an integral part in this strategy. Unfortunately these very services are threatened by a initiative by the Department of Transport which could impact drastically on the number of voluntary drivers available."
