Social Events and Outings

Join us on one of our special events that can include our regular bingo afternoons and trips to garden centres and places of interest.

Good foot health is something that many of us take for granted. However, if our feet develop problems they can affect many aspects of our lives. Poor foot health can lead to reduced mobility, which in turn can produce serious physical, mental and social consequences. This is particularly true for older people 

Our  chiropody service is aimed directly at preventative healthcare encouraging our clients to use the service regularly and so avoid conditions developing. If a medical condition has developed then our chiropodist will treat the condition at no extra cost. Find out more
