In this week's Herald. . .
IT'S a bumper edition of the Herald this week – packed with news, features and even a special 14-page picture supplement celebrating that milestone of your child's first day at school.
In news, we reveal the climbdown by CALA Homes over their controversial omission of affordable housing from their development plans while, nearby, residents against plans for Stratford's South Western Relief Road step up their plans.
And, with winter approaching, campaigning is also on the mind of residents in Alcester who have launched a petition to get a schools road included on the county council gritting run.
As the Stratford Neighbourhood Development Plan gets the green light from the council, it's over to the public for their views. We set out exactly what's being proposed in our special full page report.
Plus, there's the latest from the courtroom on former police officer Timothy Lively who is charged with 18 counts of historical sexual assault, many against children.
There are tributes to two current and former councillors following their deaths and pressure is growing on SDC to support both clean air and Brexit motions.
In Kineton the focus falls on a 14-year-old buy who is raising money through an incredible unicycling challenge and we bring you snapshots of events from around the district courtesy of our photographer.
There is also all the latest news from the parishes with our Clubs and Villages page as well as your letters and events listings for the days ahead.
Plus, this week, as our thoughts turn to the approaching half term holidays, we are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a VIP Party for 12 children at Jump In trampoline arena in Warwick - worth more than £200.
And there's all the latest from the worlds of Sport and Arts, including photos from the Fun Palace in Stratford.
But don't forget – if your child started school in the district last month - pick up your copies of the paper sooner rather than later as last year we did sell out quickly!
All this for just 80p.
