Buckshaw Surgery Car Park

Essential maintenance work is shortly taking place on the roof of Buckshaw Surgery which will involve a crane being positioned in the surgery car park.

This will mean the row of spaces alongside the building will be unavailable for two weeks from Friday, April 5 so please allow additional time before appointments for parking during this time as spaces will obviously be restricted. Thank you.
