A lovely day at South Petherton Hospital where we unveiled a bench in memory of Dorothy Hudson, who sadly died not long ago.
Dorothy and Mary Robertson worked tirelessly side by side at the old hospital before it fell down (or some of the ceilings did), and were a constant thorn in the side of the authorities to make sure a new hospital replaced the old one. Since then they have been an inspiration to many in the hospital and in the local community.
We will miss Dorothy, and of course so will Mary. We all said a few words, Sister Heather Ancill assisted in cutting the ribbon, and I was very pleased to meet more of Mary's family who came for this really moving occasion.
