100 years on, Sedgefield Remembers

100 years on, Sedgefield Remembers Friday 9th November at 10.30am beside St Luke's Church, Winterton After a short parade of the Sedgefield Veterans' Standard, children from the three schools (about 70 in all) will join in a short service, along with The Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Andrea Flynn, the Mayor of Sedgefield and staff from nearby workplaces. Everyone is welcome.

GP services are changing

Most readers will have received a letter from Skerne Medical Group, outlining the changes that they need to make in order to continue delivering a high standard of service to patients. They have struggled to recruit GPs, and following retirements and resignations, there has been a significant decline in the consulting time available for patients. The proposed changes are designed to secure GP services here in the long term.
