Foot Care Clinics are held every Thursday and Friday at the Herman Prior Centre from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you have problems with corns, callouses or hard to cut toenails, you are welcome to make an appointment to see the Foot Care Nurse by calling the Centre at 204-857-6951. For those with a more serious foot problem, a podiatrist comes to the Centre every six to eight weeks. His next clinic is on November 25 and appointments are required. If you wish to make an appointment with the podiatrist Dr. Bellmont call toll free 1-877-909-3338. Make sure that you state your appointment is for the Herman Prior Centre. A fee is charged for both clinics.

Note- Duplicate Bridge is at 1pm on Tuesdays.
