A healthy start to the new year and Congratulations to Janene Cox

“Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a great break and you’re ready for another exciting year.  My start to the year is going to be slightly unusual as I have decided to do the Dry January thing this year. Dry January is a Public Health campaign to encourage you to drink alcohol slightly less. I have never done it before but am hoping it will give me a kick-start in trying to have a heathier lifestyle in 2015.  So far I have managed to make it through the first weekend without too much difficulty, but, looking at my calendar, January is a long month with another four weekends to go!

Only one other thing I really wanted to mention and that is to congratulate Janene Cox, our Commissioner for Tourism and the Cultural County, on receiving an OBE in the New Year Honours list for her work nationally in relation to libraries.  Janene is held in high regard by everyone that has any contact with her, whether inside or outside the county council, and her honour is thoroughly deserved.  Very few local authority officers nationally receive honours, so it speaks volumes about Janene and her qualities that she is one of the few chosen for this honour.  Well done Janene!”
