Henrietta's cycle to work

Maggie Treadaway who worked as a dental hygienist at Tavistock House for over 40 years lost her husband, Paul after a long battle with myeloma earlier this year.

In his memory I have decided to do a sponsored cycle to work and back - 26 miles each day - from Monday the 29th of July to Friday the 2nd of August.

I want to raise money to help myeloma research to help patients to receive the best care and treatment possible in the future.

All donations are appreciated!

Lesley's midnight walk for Florence Nightingale Hospice

On 22nd June, while you were sleeping (unless you were on the route) myself, 699 men, women, children and one dog did the Midnight Walk for Florence Nightingale Hospice.  We warmed up at the college, purchased flashing rabbits’ ears, and set off at midnight.  It was a great sight along the Bourg Walk bridge with all the flashing lights from ears etc.!  After crossing Walton Street we did a circular walk along Wendover Road, through Bedgrove, back along Tring Road and back to the Waterside theatre to a very welcome ice cream with Jaffa cakes.  The five miles ended there.  From here we walked past B&Q on Park Street doing another circular walk taking in Elmhurst, Weedon Road, Bicester Road, Rabans Lane, Fairford Leys, back to Bicester Road, Gatehouse and then back to the college. We were very well supported with volunteer marshals all along the route with encouragement and water bottles, tooting cars and a couple of people who had had a good night out.

We arrived back at the college at 3am to a round of applause, a medal and a welcome bacon roll and cup of tea. It was a moving experience and I hopefully will do it again.

I raised £140 thanks to all my very good friends, family, and work colleagues.

Team weekend in Cheltenham

On May 18th/19th team Tavistock headed to Cheltenham to share a weekend away.  On the Saturday we saw “Oliver!” at the local theatre, and enjoyed an evening meal.  On the Sunday a trip to Bourton-on-the-Water led some of us to a maze, and others to the model village.  Fun was had by all, and of course we didn’t end the event without our traditional “non-posed” photo.

Tavistock restores a smile – the tale of a wedding day

Kerry (of Tavistock) kindly invited the team to her wedding reception.  On arrival they discovered that Kerry’s sister-in-law Kirsty was not as happy as could be – because her dental bridge had become detached that very morning!

Team Tavistock was on the case.  Immediately returning to surgery with Kirsty, the bridge was promptly refitted, before returning to the party.

In the time of a dance or two, the team restored Kirsty’s smile – and everyone lived happily ever after!
