PARKING PROBLEMS AT GREAT WITLEY SURGERY ON SATURDAY 29th APRIL
On Saturday 29th April in the morning, there were problems with parking at the Surgery as a large cycling event was being held in the village hall while Covid booster injections were being given at the Surgery. Unfortunately a gap in communications between the organiser of the cycling event and the Practice Manager at the Surgery meant that cyclists were also parking in the Surgery car park. For a while, some elderly patients attending the Surgery had difficulty finding a parking space, and there was congestion in the car park.
The organiser of the cycling event, Mike Amery of British Masters Cycle Racing, and the Surgery Practice Manager, Trish Longmore, would like to apologise for the inconvenience and distress caused to some patients. As soon as they became aware of the problem, they took steps to free up parking spaces at the Surgery, which improved the situation. They will ensure that this problem does not happen again.
The cycling event, the Tour of the Abberleys, has been taking place for the last 25 years and brings older cyclists from all over Britain to experience the beautiful countryside around Great Witley, to use local accommodation, and to bring significant income to the village hall.
