May 2023 AGM Day
We were delighted that we were, once again, able to hold our AGM Day at St Thomas’ in-person.
2pm Chapel Service
The Speaker was the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally.
The Service was recorded and is available on The Nightingale Fellowship website. It was not live streamed this year.
(Please note the collection was for the Chapel at St Thomas’ and only cash or cheques accepted).
3pm Annual General Meeting
The Speaker this year was Sophie Hacker who designed The Calling Window installed at Romsey Abbey.
Sophie had copies of her book illustrating this artwork available to purchase at teatime and was happy to sign these. They cost £10 each. There were also cards of the window available too. These were £2 each and lovely mementoes to keep or send to absent friends.
Yes – Afternoon Tea was back!
Tea is a benefit for Members of The Nightingale Fellowship and was served in Shepherd Hall, so we could all catch up with each other after such a long time.
Anyone who is not a Member was required to pay £5 each (cash only accepted).

A wonderful day out!
The Nightingale Fellowship are hoping to hold an event in Autumn 2024.

The Florence Nightingale Museum
The Florence Nightingale Museum St Thomas’ Hospital 2 Lambeth Palace Rd. London SE1 7EW.
The Florence Nightingale Museum, which is housed in the St Thomas’ Hospital, is devoted to Florence Nightingale, covering her Victorian childhood, her life in the Crimean and her life as an ardent campaigner for health reform.
It is a wonderful place to take your family and learn of her exceptional work. In the Museum, visitors learn more about the legacy of Florence Nightingale and her impact on nursing today. Highlights in the collection of the Museum include the writing slate she used as a child, her pet owl Athena and Nightingale’s important medicine chest.
Should you be in the area of St Thomas’ Hospital it is well worth a visit.
