All in-patients will receive a gift on Christmas day and will be offered wine with their meal. Staff will also receive gifts, individually on the wards and elsewhere as teams
Farmers’ market tea tent
Farmers’ market tea tents were held in May and September at Secrett’s where we were welcomed back. Takings were down due to poor weather but we still raised a useful amount of money and raised awareness of the hospital.
We will be selling whole cakes and hot drinks at the Farmers’ Market: do come and support us there between 10 and 1. Social distancing and Covid aware hygiene will be practised.
The 2021 AGM was held in person in October. We were told about the forthcoming building project to hold the new scanners.
Our 2020 AGM was delayed and held on Zoom on March 26th. Jacquie Robini stood down as Chairman and was replaced by Jenny Millar. The plans for community care were explained and we heard the good news that the X-Ray facility is staying and being augmented by 2 MRI scanners. The confirmed minutes can be accessed Here
Constant hand washing has taken its toll and we have supplied regular quantities of hand cream to staff, some donated by Milford Pharmacy. Hampers of fruit and goodies, some donated by Secrett’s have been delivered and in the summer, Hall Hunter Farm provided strawberries every week. We are very grateful for the support from the community.
Tovertafel at last!
The magic table that projects interactive images onto a table is finally in use and proved very popular with patients and staff. Representatives of Guildford Lions came to the hospital in February to present a cheque towards the software. They enjoyed playing the games at a demonstration in which they were joined by Matron Kelly and the President of the League of Friends. Watch the video below
