Our PPG currently has 8 committee members, of whom most are of retirement age. The group meets quarterly. To invite patients to get involved, posters were put up in the surgery and invitations were extended to the narrowboat community and also to members of the mums and toddlers group. We have attempted to make the group representative of the age demographic of our patient list, but involvement comes more willingly from senior patients, who can draw on their experience and perhaps have more time to give to the group. The practice learns the views and recommendations of the PPG at the quarterly meetings.
Walking for Health in Severnside - Frampton PPG
After 4 years sterling service to Severnside Walking for Health, Nick Peters is going to take a lesser role. In footballing parlance, he is moving upstairs to become ‘director of football’ and I will be taking a more administrative role. Nick will still be actively involved (especially when I am on holiday!) with his unique knowledge of our locality.
The next walk in the area will take place on Thursday 15th of November starting from the locks in Eastington.
(As you leave the Shell garage roundabout on the A419 for Eastington, take the first left - opposite signs for William Morris House). Please meet at 9.45 for a 10.00am start.
As usual, the walk can include stiles and field paths and is approximately 2 miles in length and should take a maximum of 1.5 hours.
For more info, please ring Keith (and leave a message) on 01452 741377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
