John Huxford

John is now in West Park Hospital.  He will be there for 6 weeks and will be receiving Physio as he is struggling with his right arm & leg.

Les Owen spoke to him on Thursday evening (04/02/21) and he sounded very positive.  Les assured him that all at EBC were constantly thinking of him & wished him a speedy recovery.

He has been unable to see Sandra since 1st December 2020.

He would welcome texts/phone calls.  Let us hope we can meet up soon with John & all at EBC.
