    Our contribution to the Ashington Festival

    We enjoy completely immersing ourselves in this event and as well as holding a stall we also joined in the carnival by entering a float! Several team members dressed up for the occasion including our head nurse, James, throwing himself into the role of Cruella Deville (despite his protesting, we all think he secretly enjoyed it!).

    Our contribution to St. Mary's C of E Primary School

    We are all familiar with the phrase ‘when I grow up, I want to be a vet’ and many of our own vets dreamt of becoming a vet from a young age.
