Thank you very much to the generous businesses of our local community and patients that have delivered treats to our Doctors and staff at the Surgery. The goodies pictured were delivered by Nicola on 30th April and they were from Beth Ford at Tatchbury Mount. We have also had scones with jam and cream and lemon drizzle cake from Granny Olive's Kitchen, cakes from The Cottage Loaf and a box of fruit from The Gourmet Grocer. We really appreciate these treats whilst we work through the pandemic, thank you.
