As one of his final acts during his year as High Sheriff, Hugo Fenwick has paid an official visit to Burrswood with his wife, Kate.
The pair were welcomed by the Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Councillor Julian Stanyer, and his wife, Anne, and by the Chief Executive of Burrswood, Mr John Ashelford and by staff members. On a glorious spring day, a tour of the hospital included a visit to the bookshop and church, and to the gardens, as well as to the hydrotherapy pool. Burrswood, which is an independent Christian hospital founded by Dorothy Keirin, has been chosen by the mayor as his Charity. The hospital is situated in Groombridge and welcomes visitors. It has a restaurant and cafe for those simply wishing to enjoy its lovely gardens.
