People air views on health base scheme in Reydon
A PUBLIC meeting to encourage people living in Southwold and Reydon to give their views on proposals for a new healthy living centre was held last night (Thursday, January 5).
The meeting, organised by NHS Norfolk and Waveney in conjunction with the Southwold and Reydon Society, took place at St Edmunds Church Hall in Southwold last night - contrary to the report in today's Journal, for which we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Locals had the chance to find out more about proposals to create the healthy living centre on a 2.4-acre site on the former Eversley School playing field, off Wangford Road, Reydon.
Subject to confirmation of further funding, the centre will be developed to replace the overcrowded Southwold Surgery and provide facilities for community services.
The meeting launched a 12-week public engagement programme, during which the local community will be able to offer feedback on the proposals which are due for completion in 2013/14.
