For those of you who have been asking about this publication, we are pleased to say that “Fresh Air on the Verandah” will be launched on Saturday 2nd November from 10 – 2pm.
We would like to invite all of you to a display of images and artefacts from the hospital at the British Legion Club, Shaw Drive and stay to watch the unveiling of a new permanent sign at the entrance to the former site by one of the last patients to be treated at The Adela Shaw Hospital.
There will be chance to chat over tea and biscuits and meet the group who have been working so hard on this special project. We would also like to thank the Two Ridings Community Fund who made this possible with a grant from the Moss Family Fund. Without this support it would have been impossible to mark the site in this way. The KHG is self-funding and any money raised through book sales goes straight back into projects and preserving artefacts relevant to our town’s heritage. This boost will mean that visitors and former patients and their relatives can come and find out about this unique establishment with much greater ease than before.
