NEW year, new you....and all that jazz. Don’t you just hate it when people spin the positive on everything during January by saying this four words? Well for me yes, this is a new year, but it’s not so much a new me rather than a more organised (and hopefully fitter and thinner) me.

I WANT our local businesses to grow so that we have ever more jobs and rising incomes and living standards in the area. For local businesses to grow and for competition to thrive, it’s really important that investment continues in the local infrastructure that our businesses rely on.

ON SATURDAY, I was really pleased to join in with the celebrations in Crowthorne for this summer’s carnival. A true local institution, the biennial carnival occupies a week in the summer schedule, when residents of Crowthorne and further afield can enjoy the exciting and diverse events available.

We've all heard about the notorious “glass ceiling” women often face when they try and pitch for the top jobs that have traditionally been dominated by men, but recent evidence suggests things are - finally - starting to get better.

Health resolutions are all very well, but are some of us trying to become super-slim and ultra-fit in too much of a hurry?

AFTER months of campaigning, I am delighted that the Urgent Care Centre at Brants Bridge in Bracknell has opened its doors to its full range of services. Open 365 days a year, 12 hours a day, the new HealthSpace offers state-of-the-art medical facilities in an easily accessible location.

AS A lot of my readers will know my aim in this column is to fight the corner of the disabled. So here’s a bit about our new ‘Wokingham Medical Centre’, or doctors’ surgery to you and me. All very bright and modern, with a lot of expensive technology.

HERE in Ascot, we are fortunate to have been somewhat sheltered from the economic struggles facing other parts of the country. Business is stronger than ever, and this is a tribute to entrepreneurs who have persevered through very difficult years. We are seeing a private sector- led economy, especially locally, with a record number of people in work as businesses invest, grow and take on new people.
