Heritage Day at Tarporley Hospital

Tarporley Memorial Hospital's Heritage Day enjoyed the added bonus of some fine autumn sunshine for the visitors to the exhibitions. Donations on the day raised £368.

 

The sign at the entrance was direct and functional but the welcome inside was as warm as the sunshine outside.
