A Wolds village has said a fond farewell to the doctor who has served them well over almost a quarter of a century.
Dr David Bee, along with his wife Trish, took over the GP practice in the village in 1990 and at that time, the surgery was held in a small house in High Street.
But over the past 24 years, the couple has built up the practice, including the creation of a purpose-built surgery, which now serves 2,500 patients in Binbrook and surrounding villages.
And a number of those patients turned to show their appreciation at his retirement bash in the village hall.
“We are both amazed at how many people have turned up,” said Dr Bee.
“When we started here, it was a very small surgery, but we fought hard and received the help to have what we have today.
“The staff have always done far more than they needed to, so it has been very easy and very enjoyable.”
David, who will be carrying on his work in accident and emergency, and Trish were presented with a bench and many other gifts.
“He did a marvellous job and has really kept the whole community going - and we thank him for that,” said patient Geoffrey Portlock.
