I would like to thank Helen Millichamp for the lovely article she wrote about my retirement from general practice in Rothbury, which was published in your paper on July 31.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in practice but am also looking forward to retirement and the extra time it will bring to pursue other things.
Many of my friends and patients have made donations towards a retirement present for me and I wonder if you will allow me to thank them through your paper.
I had a retirement party on August 13 and Ian Armstrong made a delightful speech and presented me with an extremely generous cheque, which I plan to spend on buying a fruit cage for the garden.
We plan to continue living in Rothbury and look forward to many more happy years here.
Westhill House, Rothbury
