Past Events 2021: Friday 30th July, 1-3pm – Open Garden Event – celebrating 75 years of the Almshouse Association – What was a very rainy day, turned into a great success. The Long Alley gardens, and almshouse and the Hospital Hall were be open for viewing and around 150 people of all ages came to look around. Whilst holding tightly to the gazebo, light refreshments were served in the gardens by staff, governors and residents! It was lovely that so many people braved the weather to visit and everyone seemed to enjoy the event. We are very grateful to the Mayor Ms Cheryl Briggs who attended with her consort, Ms Halima Brewer.
