Lighting a Beacon

You will have seen from our events page that we are lighting the Highfield Park beacon on the 11th November as part of the Nation’s tribute to those millions who gave their lives for their country or returned home wounded during or after the four years of War 1914 – 1918. In parallel with this we hope to put on a small exhibition in the Visitor Centre showing how the First World War impacted Hill End Hospital with 44 staff members leaving the employment of the Hospital in order to fight.  As per the letter that featured in the Herts Advertiser this week if anyone has any information that they would like to share in order to assist our research we would be very grateful.
