Hull

On Wednesday the 13th September we had our last coach trip of the year. A little concerned as the weather prediction for the day was high winds & rain and a possibility of the Humber Bridge being closed but it was reopened early that morning and luckily the weather was good to us again. We were very pleased to have our own guide in Peter who comes from Hull and he gave us a wonderful talking walk about the old part of Hull of which everyone enjoyed. Now looking forward to 2018 and more trips.

Nurses Fundraising Event 8th July

We woke up to another sunny day much to the relief  of our nurses who were having their first open garden fundraising event. the day was a great success and it was estimated over 400 people attended, many cups of tea and cake were consumed. The Heart Support Group members were helping out and also had a plant stall, which thanks to Lynda went very well and nearly everything went. On the day and with the raffle which all the prizes were donated by local shops and businesses in Louth, the total raised is in excess of £6000, this is to be used for Cardiac Rehabilitation Equipment.
