Fiona Thomas-Lambourn, Chairman of the Flora Group said; “Everyone involved in this community venture was delighted to give up their time to help with the project and we wish our special hospital all the very best for the future. If our planting gives a little bit of pleasure to those visiting the hospital we will be extremely delighted.”
The two, rather impressive flower tubs, along with a significant amount of compost were kindly funded by the West Cornwall Hospital, League of Friends. They were delivered free of charge by Munro’s Horticultural Suppliers in Hayle, and Eddie Tracey; a local builder who gave up his free time to deliver bags of compost.
Gill Prodger, Hon. Secretary for the League of Friends said; “We were pleased to be able to fund this project to enhance the main entrance of the Hospital and are delighted with the results”.
Local Artist Jeremy Sanders (www.jeremysanders.co.uk) volunteered his time to paint each of the pots with the historic West Cornwall Hospital logo. He said; “I was more than happy to be able to provide some decorative enhancement to the two pots and am delighted to have been part of this local project.”
Paul Sylvester, Hospital Manager said; “This project reflects how much our community cherishes its hospital. It is extremely rewarding when local people give up their free time to work on projects such as this. Without their input for ventures such as this, the hospital would struggle to find the necessary funding, time and manpower to be able to do this. We do and always will, value the generosity and goodwill of our local community and will continue to provide the outstanding care they deserve.”
