The Morpeth Branch of the NHS Retirement Fellowship is back to monthly meetings at Morpeth Golf Club.

There have been talks on Performing Arts, and Wills and Trusts, particular the costs of long term care. They also had a talk about sepsis, which can lead to shock, multiple organ failure and death. In the UK some 37,000 people succumb every year.

To raise awareness Sock it to Sepsis mounted a campaign to get people to wear striped red and white Socks. Morpeth members went a stage further as they filled the sock with money for the charity.
