On Saturday I took my 'drop-in' surgery to Mawgan, Ruan Minor and Manaccan. Ruan Minor came as a surprise because I did not expect many to 'drop-in' as my event unfortunately clashed with the village fund-raising fete in aid of the Children's Hospice.

Support for Stroke Survivors

Our postmen and women have raised over £400,000 for the Stroke Association and Royal Mail is matching this so the fund totals £800,000 to help people who have had a stroke.

You can apply for a grant if you are a stroke survivor. Spread the word. Details are on the poster.
