The Unibus U2 – if you live on/near the A38 you might find the U2 useful.

And it’s free to use 18 to 22 February!

Weston General Hospital – a consultation has been launched which includes proposals to reform urgent and emergency services at the hospital. For further information see here.
Pharmacy 2U letter offering repeat prescription services – if you have received a letter please bear in mind that, in spite of the NHS logo, it is not from the NHS or the surgery but from a commercial organisation. It is important for the village to keep a local pharmacy so please think about this before signing up with a commercial pharmacy.
