Welcome to the David & Christina Show.

We talk to Sofia and her friend Sophie about how they are getting on in their first few weeks at secondary school and how it is changed so much since covid hit the uk.

On the coronadiaries this week, David talks about the fear of failure and how we try to overcome this sense of reject. He also investigates how people are having problems getting a coronavirus test.

David interviews Steve Francis who is a professional DJ and keyboard player. He delivers an update to his live performances including being outdoors again and using over alternative outlets like Twitch, to get his name out there.

Christina interviews Michelle Martell. They discuss Michelle’s passion for recycling and reducing plastic packaging waste and providing sustainably sourced biodegradable products through her new business venture, The Eco Shop. Her ethos is to save waste from going to landfill/oceans and to offer an alternative way to purchase dried food without plastic packaging, This new up-cycled shop in Great Casterton is due to open its doors to the public in the beginning of October offering various dried food products without harming the environment.

Christina had the honour of interviewing Andrew Nebel MBE, as he raises a very critical concern about the patients group for the Lakeside Healthcare in Stamford. He wrote this statement down:

“The volunteer led Patient Participation Group for Lakeside Healthcare Stamford urges its management to re-consider the hastily announced closure of St Mary’s surgery and cancel its voluntary surrender of the lease that still has until 2025 to run. Concentrating all service delivery on one site will only work if that is a purpose built fit-for-purpose medical centre capable of handling all 32,000 patients … the failing Sheepmarket site is not going to able to cope once Covid is over and patients rightly expect to see their doctors face-to-face” ….says Andrew Nebel,

Chair Patient participation Group. He urged all concerned patients to contact their MPs, Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Healthwatch and South Kesteven District Council to air their views.He also asked patients to register with his patient group by writing to lhsppg.secretary@gmail.com so their voices can be added to that of the patient group.

Hope you enjoy the show.
