QUIZ 2nd February 2019
Following the fire on 7th January, the quiz on 2nd February has been cancelled. We will re-arrange it for later in the year.
SURGERY DESTROYED BY FIRE
The Friends of Chiddingfold Surgery are devastated at the news of the terrible fire at the Surgery. They will be giving every assistance possible to the Doctors in the next few days, weeks and months. It is too early to know exactly how this assistance will manifest itself and further updates will be posted.
We are sorry to hear that Geoff Rose passed away on 2nd October. Geoff was Treasurer of the Friends from 2011 to 2014. We offer condolences to his family and friends.

VACCINE CARRIER PURCHASED – AUGUST 2018
The Friends have funded the purchased of a refrigerated vaccine carrier to be used between the Chiddingfold and Dunsfold surgeries. Without it the Flu Clinics in Dunsfold would no longer be possible due to a change in rules. This will benefit in particular those elderly Dunsfold residents for whom the journey to Chiddingfold is difficult.
CHIDDINGFOLD FETE – 10th JUNE 2018
We had our usual stand at the Chiddingfold Fete. As well as Doctors taking blood-pressures, and our usual splat-the-rat, we had a new attraction – hook a duck! This proved very popular indeed – and was surprisingly difficult.
Thank you to all who supported us, making a valuable contribution to our funds.
The AGM was held on 17th May. David Hamill and Judy Wright stood down as trustees and members of the Executive Board. Judy has been a member of the Board for very many years and David was Treasurer from 2014 to 2017. The rest of the Committee is unchanged.

QUIZ NIGHT – 3rd FEBRUARY 2018
A huge thank you to everyone who came to our annual fund-raising quiz held on 3rd February at the Chiddingfold Village Hall.
The Hall was full and everyone enjoyed the highly entertaining questions from our Quiz Master Neil Denyer, interspersed with a delicious ploughman’s supper and a (mostly alcoholic) raffle.
A magnificent £1,869 was raised which will help us to buy and maintain more essential equipment for the Surgery that is not provided by the NHS. We have recently purchased new defibrillators, just the type of life-saving equipment that is on the Surgery’s shopping list.
NEW DEFIBRILLATORS – DECEMBER 2017
The Friends have recently purchased two new defibrillators: one for Chiddingfold Surgery and one for Dunsfold Surgery. This is only a small part of the ongoing work by the Friends.
