Last week the Nelson Hospital re-opened. I am delighted after years of dithering, the Nelson has been designed, financed, built and now opened in the last four years. I am convinced it will be a huge asset to the local community.

Community Clear Up Day

 Last Saturday, March 21st was Keep Britain Tidy Day. I was delighted to lead a Community #ClearUpDay in South Wimbledon and I was pleased that some 25 people turned up and we fanned out from Nelson Gardens across South Wimbledon. What we found was amazing; there was a credit card, driving licences, shopping trolleys, jeans and sheets amongst numerous cans, crisp packets and sweet papers. After two hours of hard work, over 50 bags of rubbish were collected. There was a general agreement that this should become a regular fixture and I intend to arrange another session later in the year.

Visit to Merton Dementia Hub

Last week I visited the Merton Dementia Hub. The Hub is a centre for dementia sufferers and carers to meet others. They also hold a number of educational and club type sessions. There is also a treatment room for the use of doctors, dentists and chiropodists etc.  We are lucky that in this Borough we have the first such facility.
