** Important notice regarding Covid-19 vaccinations ***
Due to the supply of vaccines, we are currently unable to offer any first vaccinations at present for those aged under 40. Please keep an eye on the website and facebook page for further details when we are able to offer them again. We hope to receive supplies w/c 24th May.
For those aged 40 and above we have some capacity on 14th May. We hope to release more appointments next week.
If you had a vaccination on or before 4th March you can now book your second vaccination. If we have sent you a link via text message this is the easiest way to book. If you have not had a text message then please contact reception after 2pm daily (using option 4) to book your second Covid-19 vaccination.
Oxford Astra Zeneca - We have appointments available Friday 14th May as well as w/c 17th May. Please either use the link you have been sent or call reception after 2pm daily.
Pfizer BionTech - we are receiving our next delivery of Pfizer vaccines w/c 24th May, although as yet we do not have a specific date this week. If your second vaccination is coming due please email email@example.com with your name, date of birth, date of your first vaccine and mobile phone number. We will contact you to book. Please include a mobile phone number so that we can send you a booking link.
In the majority of cases second vaccinations will be given in the 11th or 12th week after your first vaccination. If for any reason the gap between your first and seccond vaccines is longer than 12 weeks then the advice is simply to book as soon as possible.
It’s known that engaging in exercise, creative or social pursuits has a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing.
For this reason, NHS and Local Authorities occasionally offer these activities through ‘Social Prescriptions’, such as gym membership or ‘Arts on prescription’.
Even where formal ‘Social Prescriptions’ aren’t available, there are usually a wide range of activities on offer in local communities with a number of them funded by either Local Authorities, charities or voluntary organisations.
These may include: walking groups, dance classes, knitting, fishing, cookery and many more.
Organised creative walks in nature.
Foxhole Community Garden is a resource for the local community and a place to offer therapeutic gardening sessions and gardening sessions for families.
The aim of the Society is to encourage participation in and appreciation of various aspects of the arts, but in particular, drawing and painting in all media. We believe in providing a programme and environment which will encourage members to develop and improve their skills and appreciation of art.
Totnes Art Society is an association of artists of all levels of ability.
U3A (The University of the Third Age) is a UK-wide movement which brings together people in their ‘third age’ to develop their interests and continue their learning in a friendly and informal environment. Has a range of different courses from scrabble to yoga.
A new list of mood-boosting books. Most of the books have been recommended by people who have been diagnosed with cancer. In general the books are not specifically about cancer but have been recommended as books that people found mood-boosting before or after treatment.
