Congratulations to all involved with The Great Wold Valley Heritage Trail, I was delighted to be invited to the launch and absolutely fascinated by the detail and originality of the individual village boards. This has been a very positive project, for not only does it celebrate the heritage of the Valley, but it is a testament to the collaborative working of the five Parishes Councils.

The Director of Public Health has a duty to produce an annual report on the health of the local population. The report (Sept. 2013) contains some fascinating statistics –

“By 2021 there will be over 160,000 people in NY over 65. Both males & female will live longer than the average English M/F. Deaths from stroke in NY was significantly higher than average”.

The report is in easy format to dip in and out of and well worth doing so. http://www.nypartnerships.org.uk/ CHttpHandler.ashx?id=25879&p=0

I particularly like Action 2 “Happy and healthy aging” particularly if the age range is 0 – 120! Janet Sanderson 01751 474516 Cllr.Janet.Sanderson@northyorks.gov.uk
