Bishopthorpe Social Club is 70

This year marks the 70th Anniversary of the founding of Bishopthorpe Social Club, and to celebrate this milestone the Club is presenting a display of photographs, memorabilia, documents and archive material relating to the history of The Poplars (the house before it became the club) and Bishopthorpe Social Club.

PPG Meeting Changes

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) meeting for September will now be held in Bishopthorpe. This is on a trial basis that may become a regular alternative to just being centred in Copmanthorpe.
The August meeting will still be held at Old School Surgery at Copmanthorpe on Wednesday 31st August at 18.00 – 19.30. The following meeting, to be held on Wednesday 28th September, will be held at St. Andrew’s Church Hall, Bishopthorpe to allow members who live in Bishopthorpe easier access to the meeting venue.
Further meetings are planned for Wednesdays 26th October and 30th November but there will not be a PPG meeting in December.
If you would like to join the group (online or by coming to meetings) or find out more about what it involves please contact Marcus Collumb, Practice Manager, by emailing  or telephoning  01904 706455.
