The newly refurbished courtyard at the special care baby unit at Conquest Hospital, has officially been opened by Vice Lord-Lieutenant Mr Graham Peters.
The courtyard was designed by John Wright in memory of his late partner Bayley John Carter, with plants in a theme of blue as a tribute to his favourite colour. The work was completed with the help and support of local businesses and our gardening team headed by Andrew Hawkins and the Conquest Friends’ gardening volunteers. The special care baby unit team were actively involved in the fundraising efforts.
During the event, Friends of Conquest Hospital Chair, Sarah Kowitz DL, gave a speech of thanks for all of those involved with this project before special guest Vice Lord-Lieutenant Mr Graham Peters officially opened the courtyard and cut the ribbon.
This courtyard forms part of the Friends ‘Conquest 21’ project to reinvigorate the 21 courtyards at Conquest. Funds are still being raised for this project, with a number of courtyards still to be completed.
