August can sometimes feel like an empty month, with so many people away, volunteers on holiday and many relatives travelling across the country to visit their families.

It reminds me that sometimes we can overlook the amount of effort and time older people give when helping out with family commitments. We should never take for granted all the work grandparents do and in recognition of this, we will be celebrating Grandparents Week early in September.

Osteopathy is a way of treating a wide range of

muscular and skeletal conditions. It’s not only backs, but from fingers and knees, to shoulders and necks.

Indeed, it is not just grandparents that we would like to thank but also the many volunteers that give their time so generously. We recently had year 11 pupils from Cockermouth School helping as part of their National Citizen Service hours. Their friendliness, smiles and energy whilst redecorating at 93 Main Street and waitressing at our Garden Party was very much appreciated.

No matter how old or young you are, volunteering and making a difference can boost your confidence, self-esteem and make you feel better about yourself.

Shwmae Cockermouth!

My name is Lucy, I’m a Podiatrist from Bridgend, South Wales. I’m up here covering for Adele at Cockermouth Podiatry and Chiropody Clinic whilst she’s on holiday. She asked me to write something for this month’s Cockermouth Post, so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself.

I found out about Chiropody when I was 13 years old whilst moisturising my mother’s feet. Since then, I haven’t looked back and completed my GCSEs and Diploma in order to complete my Podiatry degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I qualified in 2015 and I have loved every minute of my career so far.

Since qualifying, I have been running my own domiciliary practice in Newport, South Wales with my Mum who is a Foot Health Professional. I have just finished at Cardiff Metropolitan University as the ‘In-house Podiatrist’ where I was able to work alongside the students and lecturers, which I enjoyed very much.

As well as running my very busy practice, I also perform a Podiatry Service at the local

INFO@THECOCKERMOUTHPOST.CO.UK prison in Bridgend. It’s certainly a

challenging environment and it offers a unique working experience, though one which I thoroughly enjoy.

So, I am here in Cockermouth with my partner Steve, looking after Adele’s lovely dog and ducks. We went to Cockermouth Show and I loved watching the horses; it brought back memories of riding in the Brecon Beacons with my sister. We took a stroll through Cockermouth Main Street where we saw a plaque showing the height of the water during the 2009 flood. We were astonished at how high the level was and how disruptive it must have been to the town.

I’m looking forward to meeting the patients booked in with me over the next two weeks and hope I can provide a service that lives up to the standards of Cockermouth Chiropody and Podiatry. I hope you enjoyed reading this little article. As we say in Wales, diolch yn fawr, hwyl! (Thank you very much, bye!)
