A sad sight

A letter received today from NHS informing me that my eyes are nor affected by my diabetes.  Then off to Southborough for an eye test.  All well.

However Southborough is a sad looking place.  No banks, a big void where once the council offices and theatre stood, closed pubs.  All very depressing.

However the most depressing sight was the notice in the window of the erstwhile Cafe Bliss.  Premises to let. The cafe was a community asset but when shove came to push the support of those prepared to bask  in the glory in better days was not to be found when the going got tough.

In happier days:

Worsening bus services

From 27 July the 402 service between Tunbridge Wells and Bromley will terminate at Dunton Green.

Some time ago the Tunbridge Wells - Ashford service was cut back to Tenterden.

This year the 6A route between Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone was terminated at West Peckham.  The loss of two buses an hour between Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone is compensated  partially by the provision of an extra bus on the route between the two towns via Tonbridge.

Pacemaker Update

An appointment with the heart failure nurse today elicited the good news that my heart is working towards the bottom of  the 'normal' range for heart activity, an improvement of over 100% pre my medication and pacemaker implant.

Pacemaker Diary 3

A year ago today I had an angiogram. Two months ago  I had a pacemaker/defibrillator fitted.  I am making good progress and the heart failure nurse is hoping to discharge me from her care next week.  the care I have received at Pembury and Maidstone hospitals, the heart failure  nurse and my GP has been excellent.
