29 Jun Ahead of Essex County Hospital’s closure you can say goodbye at a special event!
Ahead of Essex County Hospital’s closure you can share your thoughts at a special event!
People can share their memories of Essex County Hospital at an open day on Saturday 30 June (1-5pm).
The Lexden Road building will close later this year, having served the community for over 200 years, with services being moved to Colchester Hospital, but not before this special event which has been organised by the hospital and the University of Essex.
Students from the university have been working tirelessly for several months, piecing together a history harvest of the hospital’s past on a website, in the form of over 500 photographs and newspaper cuttings.
They would like to add to their history harvest and are urging anyone with any items relating to the hospital to bring them along on the day.
