Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, has presented the team at Manor Pharmacy in Horam with the Wealden Hero Award.
The fantastic team at Manor Pharmacy provides vital services to Horam communities. Since the beginning of the pandemic, they have worked tirelessly to deliver medicines to the homes of vulnerable residents and help them stay safe and well.
As the pressure on GP practices grew throughout the Covid crisis, more people have been turning to pharmacies when they needed healthcare advice and the team at Manor Pharmacy have gone above and beyond to remain open throughout the winter lockdowns and under all weather conditions.
Nusrat was accompanied by District Councillors for Horam & Punnetts Town Susan Stedman and Bob Bowdler to present the team with the Award.
Nusrat Ghani said: “Pharmacies are part of the fabric of our local high streets and they are essential health and wellbeing assets for the many rural village communities across Wealden.
"Following many nominations from the community, this Award reflects how valued the team at Horam’s Manor Pharmacy is by local residents. Last year, Horam’s Davies & Sons Butchers were awarded the Wealden Hero Award for providing the community with essential foodstuffs throughout the pandemic and I’m pleased to have returned to Horam again this year to present the award to another fantastic business on Horam high street.”
