Granta Medical Practices are pleased to announce that they will be offering a complete flu vaccination service this year, with clinics being scheduled for October 2019. 

The Department of Health have assured us that there will be no delivery problems, and this year we will be using a highly effective quadrivalent influenza vaccine. 

The clinic dates will be announced shortly and there will be clinics run at all Granta sites.   

Patients eligible for flu vaccinations include:-   
  • Anyone 6 months of age up to and including 64 years of age if they are in an “at risk” group, e.g. asthma, COPD, chronic heart problems, diabetes. If you are unsure if you fit into an “at risk” group don’t hesitate to ask.   
  • All patients 65 years and above, or who will be by 31/01/20.   
  • All children from the ages of 2 to 10 years of age. Those children who are in primary school education will receive their vaccination at school.

Barley Village Plan - have your say
It is time to review the Barley Village Plan which was created in 2015. 

The Parish Council will lead the review, but needs vital input from villagers. The Council will organise a public meeting in the Autumn to initiate the review and seek applications from villagers to form a working group to oversee it. 

If you are interested, the current Barley Village plan is now published on this site. 

Further news about the review will be published in The Diary, on the village Facebook group and through the Parish Council emailing list. 

For those not already on the list but would like to be, please contact Mel Chammings at barley.parishclerk@gmail.com.
