Car Park

Our car park is continually congested with cars, many of which could be parked in the Land of Canaan car park. We are concerned at the number of minor bumps and near misses and if you park in our car park, you do so at your own risk. Please park considerately in the designated bays, otherwise you may be asked to move your vehicle before you can attend your appointment. Thank you for your co operation.

Those attending flu clinics are asked to park in Land of Canaan car park.
