Association News

The celebrations were a time of reflection and pride for hundreds of nurses who attended the ceremony see video LINK

The branch received an invitation from Chaplain Steven Brookes to attend their morning service on 12 May 19.  The service was to celebrate International Nurses Day & Florence Nightingale's birthday and we were delighted that 6 branch members could attend.
Also present were members of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers, having their own celebration.  It was a very good service made even better as we were present to welcome Arthur Benjamin at his baptism. He was very good - not a peep even when doused with water! 
As always the choir were sublime - their voices could raise the roof.
Following the service we retired for a short break & a coffee in the sunshine before going into The Great Hall for lunch. Terri Pitts with an In-Pensioner invited us to join them for a most enjoyable meal. Afterwards we spent a short time enjoying the sunshine before making our way home.  
It was a special way to celebrate International Nurses Day.

Thursday Dec 8th - Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey
 
10 members attended The Field of Remembrance which was an honour.  His Royal Highness, Prince Harry of Wales was in attendance and as always charmed all those present, especially some cadets from Barbados who were at the next plot to the QAs. They were very excited. After the act of remembrance we headed off to The Red Lion on Whitehall for lunch. We were delighted to have 3 members from the Newcastle Branch join us also we were pleased to welcome Lesley Steer who has now transferred to the Millbank Branch. On our way we stopped in Trafalgar Square to pay our respects to suffragette Millicent Garrett Fawcett 
A grand time was had by all.
Sunday Dec 11th - St. Paul's Cathedral
The three branch members who paraded the standard at The Lord Mayor's Show paraded the standard again at St. Paul's Cathedral. Also in attendance was Maj Brigid Gallop. This year our standard was placed on the high alter & our members sat in the quire next to the Lord Mayor - such an honour. 
After marching with the Old Comrades the group enjoyed a good curry lunch at The Mansion House. Another great day for our members.
