Volunteering and working together: Annette Brooke shares some thoughts on new health and social initiatives in Broadstone

The Harvey Practice in Broadstone is one of several GP practices in Dorset to take up the challenge from Altogether Better, which operates on behalf of the NHS, to recruit Practice Health Supporters. Currently people are being identified who are prepared to voluntarily give their time to work with staff to find new ways to improve the services that the practice offers, and to help to meet the health needs of patients and the wider community.      See full story...

New arrivals: Moira Clark and Katja Wilson introduce themselves

New every morning: Rev Linda Chester reflects on a whole variety of New Beginning experiences

When we pause to reflect, it’s interesting that all of us are constantly facing “new beginnings” throughout our lives.

Churches Together in Broadstone

I recently attended my first CTiB (Churches Together in Broadstone) meeting at St Anthony’s as a representative of Broadstone Methodist Church. The experience was very much a learning exercise for me, listening to reports of the current activities. Sue Gowling is due to become Chairman in September and of course, we are now blessed with two new permanent Ministers, Helen at St John’s, and Andy at the United Reformed Church. I am optimistic that there will be even more positive achievements for CTiB as more opportunities for working together are identified - an important aspect of 'the Way Forward' for Broadstone Methodist Church.      See full story...
