Nurse Paulette Simms, who works at the Spring Village Wellness Centre, is a happy woman.

Since a feature was carried on her in Rural Xpress on January 3, with her expressing the desire for a dentist and doctor to volunteer their time at the facility, she said there is a ray of hope now on the horizon.

"The Rural Xpress story was picked up by The Breath of Change (TBC) radio, resulting in an on-air discussion, resulting in wonderful news."

"I got a call from a Sophia Thompson informing me that a dentist from California - Dr Harrison Bland is willing to come down and see a few patients," a happy Nurse Simms said.

Thompson is still working on trying to get doctors to volunteer their time at the centre.

"I have been getting a lot of positive feedback, but we still need more help," she said.
