We are delighted to hear that three local gatherings of retired Queen’s Nurses have recently taken place. Twenty-seven nurses gathered in Inverness for their annual gathering organised by Volunteer Visitors Angela and Elsa. Old connections were renewed and new ones made over a splendid afternoon tea. The following day fifteen nurses came together for coffee and cake in Edinburgh, the first time there had been an Edinburgh gathering for a few years. Then last Friday, despite the bad weather, a group of nurses met up in Glasgow and had a wonderful time reflecting on times gone by.
