At last, the ground works for the site on which the new Medical Centre will be built have started. For clarification the entrance to the site is about 200m down from the Morris Dancer going towards Chester. We do not yet have a definitive completion date but we hope by the end of 2021.
We have previously reported that discussions between the medical practice and the PPG on how a sustainable business model for the Wellbeing Hub would be managed, were ongoing.
Since then we have had the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic which has altered the playing field somewhat. Given this situation, the PPG are concerned that the original plan cannot be sustained in its current form. What this means is that the plan for the Hub is now uncertain.
The Board of Trustees of the Wellbeing Hub is therefore pursuing an alternative business model as we believe that our best option is now to seek a third party Partner to assist us in the development and running of the Wellbeing Hub. We are cautiously optimistic that a suitable Partner will be found.
We still need to raise £33,000 to ensure that we can pay for the building and repay all the bonds, but our fundraising plans are on hold until the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and we have a suitable plan and Partner in place.
