The Kennet River Dental Practice - the NHS service at the Marlborough surgery - is to cease operating from 31 December 2018. Its contract with NHS England comes to an end - and appointments booked for after that date are cancelled.
In this current environment of tight budgets, cuts and the squeezing out of all but the essential across the whole health and social care arena, it is increasingly frequent that the 'softer' issues such as social inclusion and engagement with the community of those less able to get out and become involved suffer.
Marlborough 36 - 21 Chippenham
Marlborough continued their excellent start to the season with a sixth win in a row and against another local rival, this time Chippenham. The whole Club is enjoying their first ever time in Level Six and every week brings a new challenge and a Club that they've either never faced or not faced in a very long time. As they go into each game, the squad know how much respect every team deserves and the physicality they bring, but are confident in the style of rugby they are trying to play.
On behalf of the Marlborough Town Council Mayor Lisa Farrell was presented with the inaugral Local Council Community Award from Community First at their AGM and Award Ceremony held last night, Thursday 11 October in Devizes.
Ian Tucker - photo above - has been appointed Principal of St. John’s Academy following the promotion of the previous Principal, Nicky Edmondson to head up the Excalibur Academies Trust. He is currently Headteacher of Abbeyfield School in Chippenham.
