BRIDGWATER Hospital staff are preparing to hold a final goodbye party before they move from Salmon Parade to their new state-of-the-art building off Bower Lane.

Anybody with a connection to the Salmon Parade hospital is invited to attend, whether they are ex-staff, volunteers or old friends of the establishment.

Staff are already preparing to move to the new hospital which is set to open in the spring and this will be their send-off for anyone with fond memories of the old building.

The reunion event will be held at the Bridgwater and Albion Rugby Club on Friday, February 28, from 7.30pm until late.

The event will include a hot buffet and a raffle will be held using the proceeds from ticket sales.

Tickets priced at £10 are now on sale and will be available until Friday, January 31.

To purchase tickets call Jane Allen on 01278 436744 or 07796 071120.
