Gardening Success

A group of green-fingered local residents have successfully completed a gardening course run by the For All Healthy Living Centre, Somerset Skills and Learning and Alliance Homes.

Certificates for the level one RHS Practical Horticulture course were presented recently along with a red cabbage, donated by Cleeve Nursery, for the students to plant in their own gardens or allotments. Six of the students are also continuing on to level two of the course.

The award ceremony was also an opportunity to celebrate the Bournville Chocolate Garden's success in this year's South West in Bloom award. The garden was classed as outstanding in the It's Your Neighbourhood category out of more than 400 submissions.

Creative Writing Success

Members of a creative writing group that has been meeting at the For All Healthy Living Centre for the last two years are to have their work published.

Four members of South Words Writers will have short stories compiled into a book called Echoes and Shadows which is being published as part of the Weston Fringe Festival. The writers will read extracts of their work at the book launch at Weston Arts Gallery in early September.

The book has been edited by Bob Walton, previously head of Worle Community School. He said: "I've been really impressed by the group's passion for writing and the way they have been prepared to try out new ideas with such enthusiasm. This book offers and excellent selection of their imaginative, powerful storytelling."

Locality Health Centre Patient Survey Results Now Available

Earlier this year the Locality Health Centre formed a patient Participation Group to help improve the service, listen to patients' views and inform patients about how the practice works.

As part of this, the group have been involved with the practice in developing and carrying out a patient survey. We have then discussed the results and together worked out some areas for improvement over the coming year. The results of the survey and our action plan have now been published in the LHC Patient Participation Group Report (March 2012) which is available for download here (PDF, 210kb).

Circus Skills Fun

Visitors to the For All Healthy Living Centre last week had the chance to learn some new skills thanks to a visit from members of Paulo's Circus. The circus, which is performing at Brent Knoll this month, was invited to the centre by the South Weston Children's Centre. Local children and their families had the chance to try out a range of skills including juggling.
