Burnham-On-Sea diabetes support group calls it a day

Burnbridge Diabetes group has decided to call it a day after several years of successful operations.

The group held their final meeting at the Berrow Inn last week, where the group was officially wound up.

Secretary Mike Lang told "The membership numbers were depleted, and we were starting to run out of steam. Therefore, we decided to treat our paid up members to an excellent carvery meal at the Berrow Inn, and donate the residual funds to Burnham and Highbridge Community Medical Fund."

The end result was a presentation to the Medical Equipment fund of a cheque for £400 and a lot of satisfied members.

Mike added: "They looked after us very well at the Berrow Inn, and we considered the donation to the Medical Equipment fund most appropriate, because we are keeping the money local."
