70 Years of the NHS

Planting Lilac trees at West View Hospital

Planting lilac trees at West View Hospital

Four years ago Tenterden Rotary Club members supported an initiative to plant a lilac tree at West View Hospital. We paid them a visit in April 2022 to check on progress. We are sure you will agree they are looking splendid.

From the original story

Tenterden Celebrates 70 years of NHS
Planting two lilac trees at West View Hospital in Tenterden

Tenterden Rotarians were joined by District Governor Brenda Parsons and Assistant Governor Bryan Vizzard as they planted two trees on Monday 5th November 2018.

The  purple lilac trees were planted in the garden reserved for Dementia patients and staff at West View Integrated Care Centre in Tenterden. We were joined by nursing staff, and by Jo Starr, Activities and Events Manager at West View, who was instrumental in setting up the event, and by John Goulden who is one of the leaders of Tenterden Dementia Friendly.

Tenterden Rotary Club was 70 years old last year and in turn we are proud to honour 70 years of the NHS.
