Welcome to the Michael Witt Information Room

Helping the local community since 2002, and opened in the momory of Michael Witt.

about the information room


 This information room was opened in 2002 in memory of Michael. It is staffed by volunteers, is open each morning between 9.15am and 12.15pm and its aim is to assist patients and local residents by providing:

  • Hearing aid batteries and replacement tobing
  • a medical library of videos, DVDs and books
  • copies of information from a medical website on many health conditions
  • information on immunisation requirements when travelling abroad
  • leaflets on medical conditions and local information
  • loaning out of blood pressure monitors, as directed by the doctors
  • funding towards a counselling service for those patients urgently in need.

The room depends on voluntary funding. Money is raised by various means including the sale of good quality books  in the room each morning.If you would like to help in any way, please visit the room where you will be made very welcome by the volunteer staff. 


We sell nearly-new books in good condition, both fiction and non fiction, as well as children's titles when available.

We hope that this service assists patients who would perhaps have difficulty walking, the opportunity to  purchase popular titles whilst attending a medical appointment. 

  • Hardback books are just £1.00 and paperbacks just 50p. All funds are used for the upkeep of the room only.

  • We also have state-of-the-art equipment to copy your old VHS tapes expertly onto DVD, allowing you to see those old videos from days gone by.  We can also copy those small "C" type camcorder cassettes onto DVD too. All for just £5.00 per tape

  • We can also photocopy your documents, either black and white or colour, from just 10p per copy.


The Michael Witt Room is open daily from 9.15 until 12.15, where a trained volunteer is always on hand to welcome and help you. Our volunteers are:

Marcelle, (who also manages the room), Margaret,  Anna , Christine and Jim.

  • We are all locals who have been in our roles for a number of years, and enjoy providing a friendly service to all.

We  work closely with the medical staff and management at the surgery to assist all patients as needed.
