Please find below an update from the Bury North Community Hub which contains a lot of information which I hope is useful to you.
Please find attached details of next week’s vaccination clinics including Ramsbottom Civic Hall. The information on walk-ins has been updated, in summary, priority will be given to pre-booked booster vaccination appointments, however, the four vaccination sites can accommodate walk-ins without an appointment for booster vaccinations where capacity allows. To guarantee an appointment they are asking people to pre-book.
Information from Austin:

Getting Help Line
Early Break have sent through a poster with the hours they are operating over Christmas. The helpline provides low level emotional help,
advice and signposting. Please share wide and far so that as many residents as possible are aware of the service offer at what can be a
very difficult time for some individuals. (please see the attachment entitled Christmas Card for Christmas opening hours)
