Everyone I know from Whitnash is fiercely proud of the place. The town is much older than Leamington, mentioned in the Domesday Book as Witenas, and in the medieval core around St Margaret’s and the Plough and Harrow you see its age.

I’ve been really well received on the doorstep in Whitnash (thank you!) and I have made it a priority to get around properly as there is a feeling that it is sometimes forgotten. Clearly of concern is the amount of development to the south of the town and making sure that infrastructure precedes development, not following slowly behind. Ensuring the building of the planned community centre is just part of this.
