At a recent meeting of TCC trustees, Chris Pilsbury announced her retirement as Senior Organiser of TCC:
ChrisPilsbury“After 17 amazing years involvement in Broadbased Community Organising, fifteen of them as an Organiser, sadly it is time for me bow out as Senior Organiser. I had hoped to return to work in February in a part time capacity.  However, following a difficult year I have realised that my energy levels are just not up to the job any more, nor are they likely to be any time soon.

As one chapter of TCC's history draws to a close, it opens up all sorts of possibilities and fresh thinking for the future, which can only be good.  We have said this at times before but once again never has TCC been more needed in the current economic and social climate and for the months to come.  I wish you every success with all your actions.


Sylvia__Harry_Parankard_Dawn__Val_Coleman_Parkinsons_NurseHarry & Sylvia Prankard founded the local Parkinson's support group some years ago,  They knew beyond doubt what they needed was a dedicated specialist NHS nurse in the area.  Patients all had to travel to see consultants for half yearly tests in either Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham or even London.  This would of continued to this day had it not  come to the attention of a TCC activist about five years ago who thought it was exactly the sort of issue their campaigning experience and political contacts could help resolve.

We invited Harry & Sylvia one of our monthly strategy meetings to present their case. TCC agreed to help and within a month the AM for North Wales Janet Ryder was on board and had brokered meetings with the local health board, the head of nursing and their equivalents in Flintshire.  TCC arranged a meeting with the chief executive of North Wales NHS Trust and Dr Sam Abraham (a consultant physician) set up an interest group at Wrexham Mealor hospital.  Getting to meet the right people and just keep going until you achieve the right result. 

Nurse Val Coleman is now in post at the Mealor.
