OPINION: WHAT a refreshing start to the new year seeing the joint working party involving the town’s two MPs and the borough council working together to help find a working solution for a new hospital facility for our town.
Any political differences between Andy Carter (Conservative) and Charlotte Nichols (Labour) and the Labour controlled Borough Council appear to have been put to one side for the good of our town.
This makes a refreshing change from the past where we have had two MPs representing the same party failing to work together effectively.
I hope with two new MPs representing our town this is the start of new beginnings where we can all work together for the benefit of our town.
Our current hospital is more than 100 years old in parts and is in need of urgent improvements for our ever expanding town.
Having met with the hospital’s new Chief Executive Simon Constable I am confident it has a safe pair of hands to move things forward, especially if our MPs and local council continue to work together proactively.
Let’s hope these good working relations between all parties continue long into the future.
Hopefully it will be the start of a lot of cross-party initiatives and the end of the toxic political environment we have been experiencing far too long.
Here at warrington-worldwide we love promoting all the positive work going on across our communities – long may it continue.

The swearing-in isn’t done in constituency order, so it was funny to meet @MrAndy_Carter for the first time today in the queue! The people of Warrington come first, whatever our party differences. https://t.co/9rmkaaWoXC
