Update for 50th anniversary celebration at Sonning Common Health Centre
We have decided that this special event will be further postponed until next year. This won’t come as a surprise to you.
We intend to hold the event on Sunday 27th June 2021. Please put that in your diaries. It will be a celebration not only of the 50st Anniversary – just but also the return to a new normal post Covid -19.
We still hope to have an open house with catering and activities for the young and not so young. There will be a display of the history and successes over the years. Groups such as Green Gym, Health Walks, Health Cycling and Functional Physio/Pilates and Active Leaders will be invited to have stalls to display information on healthy activities.
We very much hope that you will be able to join us next June, we will write again next spring with more details.
Kind regards, stay safe.

Citizens Advice needs volunteer advisers
We can all face problems that are too stressful or complicated to sort out alone.
Last year our 150 volunteers advised over 11,000 people. We helped three quarters resolve their debt, benefits, employment and housing problems.
We now need more advisers to help us during and after the Covid-19 crisis. Read more
Citizens Advice can help you through financial difficulties
If you are facing financial problems in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Citizens Advice can help find a way forward.
Citizens Advice research has revealed that currently over 13 million people are unable to pay, or expect to be unable to pay, at least one of their household bills. These bills are higher than usual in any case because the population is spending more time at home during the lockdown. For 11 million of these people, a missed bill could have drastic consequences: eviction, the bailiffs, or disconnection.
It is vital that you do not give way to despair, feel isolated with your problems and consider that you have to solve them all by yourself. For instance, Citizens Advice can help maximise your income with a benefit check if your working hours have dropped or if you are made redundant. We can help you decide on the best way to manage your debts in your individual situation. Get in touch with us by telephone on Adviceline (0300 330 9042). There is also a lot of useful information on our website https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk where you can also chat online.
