Ascot Dance School | 2019 Spring Show 

At the end of March, the Cordes Hall saw 65 pupils, aged from 3 to 15, and 4 adults of the Vanessa Gardner Academy of Dance perform their beautiful interpretation of the Nutcracker ballet: Nutcracker, Clara’s Dream, Fritz’s Nightmare! From tap dancing soldiers, to modern dance evil forest creatures and the classical ballet Waltz of the Flowers, the dancers of all ages performed with enthusiasm and pride. The audience were enchanted by the story of Clara, her naughty brother Fritz and the magical Nutcracker. Proceeds from the sale of show programmes, totalling £218.67, were donated to Marie Curie.

  Principal Vanessa Gardner said: "I'm so proud of everyone who performed, they delivered a beautiful and incredibly professional performance. I was so lucky to see them all dancing with such joy.”

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals and InHealth celebrate 20th anniversary of Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Service

April 1st saw the 20th anniversary of the InHealth Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Service at St Peter's Hospital which was celebrated by staff and patients. 20 years ago, invasive cardiology procedures were not common practice in district hospitals, and there were many questions asked by commissioners about the need and safety of these types of procedures. After a successful presentation, it was agreed that St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey would be the first invasive cardiology centre in Surrey.

The service has developed and progressed over the years from a ground-breaking first joint partnership, from providing coronary angioplasty and simple pacing procedures to the expansive facility we have today - an all-inclusive, purpose built catheterisation suite encompassing a 10-bedded day ward and two fully equipped catheter laboratories with direct 24/7 ambulance access for heart attack patients. The InHealth Cardiac team is supported by Ashford St Peter’s Cardiac Physiologists and Cardiologists to deliver a seamless multidisciplinary team service.

The sale of surplus land at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey has been completed; this marks an exciting development that will pave the way for major healthcare improvements locally.

The land, which was not fully utilised and housed outdated buildings, was owned jointly by Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals and Surrey and Borders Partnership. After two years of detailed work by the Trusts’ teams including an extensive consultation with the local community, Runnymede Borough Council passed the resolution to approve the planning application in November last year, enabling the land to go out to bids and agree a sale.

A sale agreement has now been reached with homebuilder CALA Homes, who plan to create a high quality development of 212 one to five bedroom homes and 166 retirement apartments. There will also be 147 new affordable and keyworker apartments, which will make an important contribution to solving the borough’s housing shortage.     

CALA will now consult closely with the local community as it prepares to submit a planning application over the summer. Demolition work is likely to start in the autumn with construction work on the new homes commencing next year.
