Police apologise for Bible ban...sort of

In the case of Jamie Murray, who was investigated by police for showing a DVD of Bible texts from the New Testament in his Christian café in Blackpool, police have apologised for their involvement. However, as the Christian Institute reports, "they refused to apologise for launching the investigation and they also denied banning the display of the Bible texts in the café".

Keep your eyes on this case - it could have ramifications for living as Christians in the public sphere UK-wide.

bomb alert in Cambridge

There appears to have been a bomb alert in Cambridge today, according to Cambridge Frist, which says a suspect package was found in a microwave. A Facebook friend tells me there was a controlled explosion - I guess it'll be all over the local news tomorrow.

Is it too much to hope that it's been a mix-up? Stay safe.

9/11: requiescant in pace

The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.

Isaiah 57:1,2

news from Fulbourn Health Centre

click for more information about the flu jabBookings for our Flu Clinics will be well under way by the time you read this. I would like to encourage all our patients who usually receive a flu vaccination to book into one of our clinics as soon as possible. There are dates available at both Fulbourn Health Centre and Cornford House Surgery, so hopefully there will be an appointment to suit everyone.

The Patient Participation Group is going from strength to strength and they are keen to involve a wider cross section of our patients. The PPG is planning to set up a mailing list, so that they can include more patients in their activities. Please come along and put your name on the list in reception if you are interested. The Group is also involved in plans for establishing a Patient Reference Group which the Practice is setting up across both sites. This group will be email based and we hope that the members will reflect the diversity of our Practice population and that this format will encourage younger people and families to become involved. If you are interested in joining the group, please call in and pick up a form or give us a ring and we will post one to you. We can then contact you for your views on what the Practice has to offer.
