Surgery news - Raffle and refreshments were on offer at the recent flu jab mop up morning at the surgery and a pleasing total of £456.27 was raised for the equipment fund.

Over the last 15 years the Wragby Surgery Equipment Fund has raised a massive total of £15,000, with a further £9,000 in donations.

This was made possible by the hard work of Anne Buffham and Caroline Hydes and their band of supporters.

Numerous pieces of equipment have been purchased including the electric couch, hearing loop, magnifying glasses, the autoclave, pulse oxymeter and so much more.

At the end of this year, Anne and Caroline will be retiring from their role or fundraising organisers but will be willing to give advice and support to any patients who wish to carry on the work.

For more details contact the practice manager at the surgery.

Shopping Evening - The Annual Christmas Shopping Evening organised by members of the Methodist Church, was held at the Town Hall, when more than 20 traders attended giving a very wide variety of goods with something to suit all tastes.

Despite the weather not being very kind, keeping some of the regular shoppers at home, around £400 was raised from the refreshments, tombola and raffle.

This will go towards the refurbishment of the kitchen in the Methodist Church and thanks go to all who attended.

And if anyone has any information as to where the 18 stolen road signs have gone to, please contact the police.
