Social Group

The social group will be taking another day trip this month on Wednesday 15th to Stratford-upon-Avon. This is a popular destination with our regulars as there is plenty to see and do – nice shops to browse, pleasant eating places or perhaps a trip on the river. For further details please contact Clare on 01780 470437 email: superfoguk@remove-this.aol.com

Please note that there is no coffee morning in August – next one will be on Friday 21st September.

AGM Advance Notice

We shall be holding our AGM on Wednesday 12th September at Wansford surgery at 6.30pm. In view of the business content of the meeting there will not be a guest speaker but all patients will be most welcome to come along and hear about the group’s activities over the past twelve months.  Surgery staff will also be attending to give a practice update and news of any future plans. 

Due to lack of interest from patients at previous AGMs in taking on an active role within the group, the current officials have now been in post for several years – in order to ensure the future of the group it is becoming increasingly important for new people to put themselves forward to join the committee – this would give them the opportunity to learn about the group’s business activities and finances with a view to being elected to an official post at a later stage.  Without being dramatic, but bearing in mind that several patient groups around the Peterborough area have recently disbanded due to lack of support and willingness of patients to become officials, unless we can attract some additional members to the committee, this same fate could be on the horizon for our own group. As one of the oldest PPGs in the country and after 38 years of dedication which has benefited both patients and practice, it would be very sad to lose this local and much respected asset.
