Osteoporosis, a debilitating condition caused by the loss of bone mineral, makes the bone susceptible to fracture, especially at the hip, wrist and spine. It is most common in menopausal women as the decline in oestrogen levels leads to an increase in the normal rat of mineral loss from bone.

Dear pupils of Berkley 1st School,
First of all I would like to say what lucky children you are to live in such a beautiful part of the country. When I was a little girl I came to stay in Berkley in the summer holidays with my cousin who lived with her family in Church Farm just opposite your school. I had lovely time playing in the fields and being with the animals. On Sundays we always went to Berkley Church and I remember thinking it was the prettiest church I had ever seen. Several of my relations are buried in the graveyard.
