We would like to apologise for the building works next door, and any disruption to
our usual car parking facilities. The site Manager hopes to have work completed by
the end of April. Towards the end of the building works we will be closing our car
park for resurfacing and the installation of bike racks and a new surgery sign.
We will endeavour to keep the car park closure to a minimum.
