Willows Grand Opening on
Saturday 22 August 2009

22 August 2009

Willows celebrated the move into their new state of the art premises with an Opening Ceremony conducted by TV and radio celebrity, Gyles Brandreth.

The day started with Gyles cutting the ribbon in the main entrance to the new state-of-the-art building which has been four years in the planning and building.

In his entertaining opening speech Gyles was quick to point out how friendly and welcoming he had found the staff at Willows to be in the short time since his arrival. He told the assembled friends, families, suppliers and construction professionals how impressed he was with the magnificent facilities and that he felt they would be the envy of many human hospitals. He also mentioned that, in a conversation with the Queen and Prince Philip in the previous week, Her Majesty had passed on her best wishes for the success of the new hospital – he reassured the audience that he was telling the whole truth! We are very grateful for Her Majesty's interest and good wishes.

The day was a great success, with several hundred invited guests taking a self-conducted tour of the premises and enjoying delicious canapés, wine and refreshments in the hospital's conference facilities. Music was supplied by Peter Renwick's guitar teacher and his partner – fortunately Peter refrained from playing!
