Anniversary events calendar

Monday 3rd December

11am - Commemorative artwork unveiling, main corridor, ground floor
This special piece of artwork will be unveiled by 10 year old Kelsey Payne from Swindon, one of the very first babies to be cared for at the hospital. The art was created with the help of our local community and over 300 photographs of babies born at the hospital have been used to create an eye catching collage in the shape of a '10'. Thank you to everyone who has helped bring this artwork to life!
