The March meeting of the St Andrews Women's Group had a record attendance to listen to our speaker Mr. David Moore, the fund raising Co-ordinator for Tarporley Cottage Hospital. His enthusiasm for his task of keeping the hospital functioning for future generations was infectious.
We learned of new plans to increase the number of beds, improved parking and medical facilities and all the fund raising events planned to make this happen. This is the 100th anniversary year of the hospital which was originally opened to nurse soldiers returning from the battlefields of WW1.
Many of the people in Tarvin will remember the fight to keep the hospital open when faced with closure by the NHS in the late 1980's.
Today it receives only a small grant from the NHS and the rest is provided by various forms of fund raising and donations.

We are fortunate to have Tarporley Cottage Hospital to serve our village and are proud to know that it is the only surviving cottage hospital of its type in Britain. Whatever we can do to support the fund raising will be appreciated and help to keep the hospital open for our benefit and the future.


We are grateful to David for an entertaining and informative evening.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday April 3rd at 7.30 in the Parish room when we look forward to a flower arranging demonstration.

A warm welcome with refreshments and good company awaits anyone who would like to come along.
