- Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
- In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.

With all these “cuts” to central government funding for Peterborough City Council, one area that I am worried about is teenage pregnancy.
As far back as 2007, I raised my concerns and called for stronger action.
In recent years we have read about reductions in the number of teenage pregnancies in the city.
Sadly, I fear, public health funding, under this present Tory regime will be effected by the cuts and all the good work might be undone,
I have now requested an update from Dr Liz Robin, Director of Public Health for Peterborough, and for assurances that support levels can be maintained.

Last year we discovered that Barnet Council had bought 28 city properties, in order to move their own homeless families in to, despite our own city facing a housing crisis forcing local people to wait more than a year for a home.
At the time, we also discovered that the Conservative controlled City Council, had no idea that this had happened!
It seems one business at least, cannot wait for the “exciting” Council redevelopment plans for Westgate, as Peterborough City Council have now been notified of plans to close the Co-operative Bank at 33 Westgate, Peterborough, PE1 1PU.
The decision seems to be due to customers increasingly undertaking “more of their transactions online or via contact-less payments.”
