John Cooke had his hip replacement operation in April but recently has contracted an infection and had to be readmitted to hospital. John is due to have further surgery this afternoon, the first of a two part procedure to sanitise the wound and reinstall the replacement hip. John is expected to remain in hospital for a couple of weeks and will be unable to drive for at least six weeks after that.
Our best wishes for full recoveries have been sent to both Trevor and John.
