“A Happy New Year to One and All”

We are delighted that Sarah Farmer-Wright was appointed, at the end of last year, as an Admiral Nurse for North Norfolk … and we wish her well in her new post.
Many of you will already have received Sarah’s help and advice, in her former job as Dementia Specialist Nurse at Holt Medical Practice.  Sarah has regularly attended the Poppy Café in her professional capacity and will continue to do so, as much as her busy schedule allows.

Details of Sarah’s visits are in the downloadable newsletter below, where you will also find more information about the Poppy Film Club presentation of ‘South Pacific’ and the support group’s Sports Sessions.
