Congratulations Pippa!

We are delighted to announce that Pippa, Chair of Transition Wilmslow has been awarded an MBE in the 2018 New Year Honours List for services to Stroke Medicine.  Pippa has recently retired from a distinguished career, engaged in pioneering work as Consultant of Stroke Medicine at Salford Royal Hospital and Professor of Stroke Medicine at the University of Manchester, researching developments in the treatment and rehabilitation of stroke patients.

But of course we know and love Pippa as our Chair of Transition Wilmslow!

We are ably led and encouraged by her enthusiasm for the aims of the world-wide Transition Movement – “communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world for a sustainable future.”

Pippa stresses the importance of participating in our local communities in both physical and social activity, coming together in common purpose to find ways to improve our environment, to make better lifestyle choices and so benefit our all round physical and mental health.

Here she is at work in our award winning community garden and orchard
