Home Start & Surgeries

On Friday there were two surgeries, the first was in Kingsbridge followed by a visit to Home Start where I learnt about the help they give families in the South Hams and I gained a better understanding of the pressures they are under and the impact that closure would have upon referrals for Social Services and Medical services.

 

The afternoon was spent at a surgery in Totnes and then the evening found me back in Kingsbridge where I was told the news that Devon County Council had decided to listen to the community and put a hold on Pay and Display. This came about as a result of the tireless campaign by the community who took the trouble to write and lobby on this issue. This was a welcome result for Kingsbridge and Dartmouth residents and I congratulate the Council on their change of heart.
