CHIDDINGFOLD FETE – 9th JUNE 2019
We had our usual stand at the Chiddingfold Fete. Again, we had the popular hook-a -duck as well as splat-the-rat. And as usual, the Doctors took blood-pressures.
Thank you to all who supported us.
The AGM was held on 6th June in the Watts Room at Chiddingfold Village Hall. We were very pleased to meet the members who came to spport us.
Farewell to Dr Cameron-Blackie
The Friends of Chiddingfold Surgery met to present Dr Gwen Cameron-Blackie with a commemorative vase in recognition of her recent retirement from the Surgery. Dr Cameron-Blackie joined the Surgery in 1996, some 23 years ago, having first worked there as a locum. Together with her partners she was at the forefront of the construction of the new surgery building at Ridgely Road and the setting up of FCS to support the new surgery in its desire to provide a cutting edge service to its patients. Many of the pieces of equipment which Dr Cameron-Blackie asked FCS to purchase several years ago have only now become standard pieces of kit in all doctors’ surgeries which is testament to her great contribution to the welfare of our Community. FCS would like to publicly acknowledge and thank Dr Cameron-Blackie for her years of dedicated service.
THANK YOU AGAIN!
The Friends of the Surgery are delighted to confirm that the re-building of the new surgery has already started less than three months after the terrible fire. We have now officially closed the Fire Appeal. We, and the entire surgery team, would like to pass on our whole hearted thanks to all the the people in Dunsfold, Chiddingfold, Hascombe, Hambledon and all the surrounding areas for your amazing generosity. For more, see this article which is appearing in May parish magazines.
We want to thank the many donors for their amazing support since the fire. As a result, the Friends have already spent some £7,000 on urgently needed equipment and will be making further purchases as the need arises. Here is a note that recently appeared in Parish magazines.
