The Stead Hospital mural was officially unveiled on 5 July by the League of Friends and the Chair of NHS Redcar and Cleveland.

I commented on how everyone was dressed up in beautiful colours suitable for a summers day apart from myself, (I was dressed up, but in black and white). Joan Elders of the League of Friends gave a speech and I was thrilled to be presented with a large colourful bunch of flowers which totally cheered up my outfit! Tony was also presented with a bottle of wine.

In 2008 the hospital received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a heritage mural to be displayed in the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre’s main atrium. Since then the hospital has enlisted local primary and secondary schools to help research the history of the hospital.

Children from Windmill Primary School in Headington joined in the ceremony on 7 June to unveil our latest heritage project to patients, visitors and staff at the NOC. Everyone rushed forward to get a closer view as the mural, fitted to the large circular column at the centre of the atrium, was gradually unveiled.
