SMILE Café Celebrates 5 Years of Successful Community Service


Pauline Burrell-Saward Burrell-Saward

is a well-known and long- established Chiropodist and Podiatrist based in the heart of Leiston. Having been practising for 25 years, always in Leiston, Pauline has moved her clinic back to her home having previ- ously been located next to the cinema. Although based from her

home, this is most certainly a fully equipped and professional clinic. In fact, the move has allowed Pauline to offer her patients an even more personal and comfortable service and environment with ample free on site car parking. Moving through the spacious entrance hall, the treatment room overlooks the stunning gardens. With her services in growing

IN October, the SMILE Café celebrated its 5th anniversary by offering free coffee and cakes (while supplies lasted!) and pro- viding free live music from the Green Elastic Band-comprising flute, guitar and melodeon. “By mid-day, on the anniver-

sary day, the Smile Café was heaving! All the 45 seats were taken and people were standing around the wall. There was a great community atmosphere with food, drink, music and lots of conversation, with everyone just having a good time!” said Don Tricker, Chairman, PAS- TEL CIC. “It’s very rewarding to see the

local Rotary Club / PASTEL partnership working so well and providing a popular and sustain- ing community service for all local residents.” Commented Graham Ward, from Saxmund- ham & District Rotary Club. County Councillor Richard

Smith remarked “It’s extremely gratifying to know that my com- munity grant of five years ago

has paid off with such a hand- some dividend for the residents of Saxmundham. And, long may it continue!” The SMILE Café is a pop-up

community café run by the local Rotary Club for absolutely everyone in the Saxmundham area and is open every Thursday from 10am to 2pm for break- fasts, snacks and light lunches. The café is based in the Main Hall and kitchen of the Fromus Centre, Seaman Avenue, Sax- mundham, opposite the Fire and Police station. The Café can seat up 45 cus-

tomers, has disabled access and toilets and offers plenty of free car parking. The SMILE Café was established by the PASTEL Community Interest Company, who continue to support the Rotary Club. If you would like to know

demand, Pauline recently wel- comed Amanda Stoner who has joined the practice as an associ- ate. Amanda is a Suffolk lady with 20 years’ experience, hav- ing run her own clinic in Bury St Edmunds before moving abroad. After four years abroad, Aman- da wanted to move back to Suf- folk and specifically the coastal region. And so, it worked out perfectly that just as Pauline was looking for an associate, Aman- da was back in the region and looking to pick up her career again. What do Pauline and Amanda

offer? In short, they can treat anything and everything to do with feet. Patients range from 10 years to 100 years of age and they may be visiting for any number of reasons. The first appointment is

always a consultation, an assess- ment and a full medical history is taken. This is important for the ladies to get a picture of what they are looking at and what the appropriate course of treatment will be. Of course, this will vary depending on the age, activity and overall health of the patient.

Amanda explains that along

the Suffolk Heritage Coast there are a great number of people who enjoy walking and hiking and making the most of the beautiful countryside. Many of the patients that visit the clinic might be in the early stages of retirement and want to make sure they stay fit and healthy. Having healthy feet is an impor- tant part of this. Pauline points out that feet are often forgotten about and we don’t tend to think about them until they hurt! Pauline and Amanda can

assess and treat anything to do with feet including: Athlete's foot (fungus), corns and hard skin (Tyloma), veruccas, in- growing toenails, removal of foreign bodies such as hair,

thorns or splinters, gait prob- lems, foot odour, and much more. Of course, the treatment will

vary depending on the issue. The clinic has all the latest equip- ment and facilities and, of course, both Pauline and Aman- da are fully qualified, not to mention they have 45 years’ experience between them. Often an underlying problem might be the result of bad foot health, or poorly fitted shoes. Upon carry- ing out a full assessment the ladies can recommend orthotic insoles to fit your shoes. These are made bespoke for each patient and can help with ankle, knee, hip and back problems. This is a clinic dealing with every day gait problems. Should

they need to, Pauline and Aman- da will refer patients to specialist sports podiatrists if that is required. Following the initial assess-

ment and programme of treat- ment (if more than one visit is required) Pauline and Amanda can provide all types of medica- tion that might otherwise only be available from a chemist. Vari- ous creams and drops for Ath- lete's foot as well as creams for hard skin and veruccas are avail- able for ongoing treatment at home. What is very clear is that both

Pauline and Amanda are pas- sionate about what they do. See- ing someone walk out of the clinic with a smile on their face, having come in grimacing, gives

both ladies great pleasure. Pau- line says that if your feet hurt it shows on your face and if that is the case, you are in the right place here. Naturally, having worked in

the town for 25 years Pauline has seen many families grow and change and has even treated three generations of some local families. That really says all you need to know about the quality of the treatment and the personal approach to service and care offered here. Amanda shares this same ethos and looks forward to meeting patients old and new over the coming years. If you think your feet could benefit from a visit or if you have any queries please call 01728 832998.
