Update from Cllr. Boulton

Face to face surgeries have not restarted yet amongst WHBC councillors and there is no specific timescale for them to do so. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if they don't start up fully until Spring next year when hopefully the booster jabs etc will have all been rolled out. I will keep you updated if I hear more and the situation changes and they are restarting, and as ever I am also available via email if there are any specific concerns residents have.
