The nearest post office open on Saturday all day from 9:00 to 17:00 is in the Premier Stores, 40 Stratford Road in Honeybourne, WR11 7PP.

The Surgery held an Open Day on the February 1st 2018 about moving to a new location which will mean moving to a new purpose built surgery on Station Road, Broadway within the next two years.


Here is an appeal to raise funds for the New Surgery.

Broadway Surgery Catchment Area

Pharmacy
There is a pharmacy in the surgery at Barn Close for people who are not residents of Broadway such as residents of Willersey. It is open on Mondays to Fridays only from 08:45 to 13:00 and from 14:00 to 18:30. It has three telephone numbers 01386 853651, 01386 853809 and 01386 858136. You take option 3 for the pharmacy. To avoid extra journeys, for a repeat prescription you can order on the internet but you have to fill in a form from the surgery and prove your identity first. You will need to order at least a week in advance to use this service. This poster about an
online prescription service is on display in the Broadway surgery.
There is also a pharmacy not far away in Lloyds Chemist Shop in Broadway High Street. Lloyds also offers an online prescription-only treatment service.

Dentist
There are a number of dentists in the area both private and NHS.
This website gives a starting list but is by no means comprehensive.

Churches
As well as our
Parish Church of St Peters and Willersey Methodist Church, there is a Catholic Church and a United Reformed Church in Broadway and a Baptist Church in Chipping Campden. The nearest Quaker Meeting is in Broad Campden.

Hospital
The nearest hospital is the
Community Hospital in Evesham but the nearest A&E departments are in Worcester or Cheltenham.
For more specialist treatment you may have to go to one of the hospitals in Bristol such as Southmead. ( A one hour 15 minute journey away.)
Do note that patients arriving by ambulance in Cheltenham between 8:00pm and 8:00am will be taken to Gloucester Royal Hospital.
The local ambulance service in 2014 could have done with improvement and in 2015 it is still not reaching its targets.
Check here for local ambulance response times by postcode.

The library building on the Leamington Road in Broadway.
Here are further details for the
library.

Fire Station
The nearest Fire Station is in Broadway but because we are in Gloucester we are usually serviced from Chipping Campden.
Hereford and Worcester Fire Authority confirmed funding in December 2018 for the re-building of Broadway fire station which is 55 years old. All staff and equipment from the existing station will transfer to the new facility when it becomes operational. Broadway Fire Station is crewed by 10 to 15 on-call firefighters and provides cover for an area of around 10 square miles, with almost 4,500 residents living in more than 2,200 properties. Planning and design work is expected to start in 2019/20 and a schedule for the build project will be confirmed once tender processes are complete.

Petrol Station
Willersey has its own petrol station on Main Street. The next nearest is in Broadway on Station Road by the railway bridge. (Is your car
taxed and insured?)

Dog Waste Bins
We have five bins in Willersey. Please use them. One is on the right hand side of the footpath as you walk from Main Street to the Village Hall and just beyond. Another is on the bridge side of the entrance to the Industrial Estate in Badsey Road. The third one is on the south side of the Broadway Road at the entrance to Warner's Farm, another is in Collin Close near the footpath to Broadway and the last is in St Peter's Churchyard near the footpath to Saintbury. If you cannot find them then any waste bin will do.
There is a waste bin near the pond and another outside the Village Stores.
Please use the waste bins and clear up after your dog. It is unpleasant for others walking on our greens and
is a health hazard.
Here is a poster either as a pdf or as a document for you to print out and display to encourage people to clear up after their dog.
(The nearest public toilets are in Broadway, at both car parks and near the children's play area.)

Bank
The Lloyds Bank, the last in Broadway closed on 12th September 2017 and the ATM was also closed down. There is a last ATM outside the Co-op in Broadway.
Broadway will be having a mobile banking van each week and it will be parked at the War Memorial as follows:-
This is for Lloyds Bank customers only.
Starting on 9th November 2020, every other Wednesday from 10:00am to 2:30pm.

Mobile Bank  in Broadway

The next nearest ATM is an HSBC one in Chipping Campden near the Town Hall.
(Hint: Maybe only use a cash machine when the bank is open to reduce hassle if it fails to deliver your cash?)

The notice below is posted outside the, now closed, HSBC bank in Moreton in Marsh!

Closed HSBC in Moreton

If you bank with all the major banks, you can use a bank card to deposit or take out cash at the Co-op Post Office in Broadway. Small businesses can also get change for the till. The travelling post office visits Willersey once a week on Friday from 12:45 to 14:45. If you want more banking services, then other than travelling to Evesham, using on-line banking is your best option. Evesham has a total of eleven banks and building societies. With a population of just under 23,500 in 2011 that's one facility for 2,136 people. Broadway had a population of 2,540 at the same time (without the huge number of visiting tourists). Broadway deserves at least one bank.
