Last week our Post Polio Support Field Officer Tom Armstrong took out the Great Tomato Challenge with the biggest tomato, after years of planning and special seed collecting.
Entries were compared and winners announced at the first Post Polio Support meeting of the year, with Chairperson Marie Collins taking an honourable mention.
The Post Polio Support Group meets on the first Thursday of every month, with the March meeting planned as a social occasion at the Red Barn in Thornton. They cover issues as diverse as medical interventions and gardening tips in an understanding environment.
Call Tom on 07 3071447 if you are experiencing the late and on-going effects of Poliomyelitis for more details about getting involved with Post Polio Support.
