Patient Participation Group

Our village GP surgery, the Old School Medical Practice, has a group that patients are welcome to join.

The patients who attend it currently comprise of eleven residents of Copmanthorpe and only one from Bishopthorpe.

Could you help to even up the numbers?

It only meets once a month.

For more details please ring 706455.

Cycling on Bishopthorpe Road reader Anthony Kilbride has emailed to ask…

“Just wondered if there had been any progress on extending the cycle track from Bishopthorpe to Terry’s along Bishopthorpe road? I spoke to some surveyors towards the end of last year who were measuring up certain parts of the track. Currently only small sections are off road and I personally believe that this road is becoming more busy and therefore more dangerous for cyclists. As someone who cycles it quite often I would fully support any improvements and would be interested to know whether others have raised similar concerns.”

Anyone got any information on this, or views as to what should/could be done?


Brass Monkey Half Marathon

This year’s  Brass Monkey Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 14th January with around 1,750 runners taking part.

The route passes through Bishopthorpe and surrounding areas so a number of roads will be closed or have restrictions applied for the duration of the event. Full details are on the official flyer which you can view using the link below.

Hope everyone has a great event!
