So often one hears comments about the now closed Milford War Memorial Hospital, how long has it been closed?, how did it become a War Memorial Hospital?, has it always been located here ? and so on.
All the answers to these questions and a lot any others, can be found in a book entitled 'Our Hospital. A history of Healthcare in Milford on Sea'. The book was written by the late Robert Coles and first published in 1994.
The Milford on Sea League of Hospital & Community Friends have now had the book reprinted in his memory.
Sales of the book will be launched as part of the Love Milford Week celebrations. You can get a copy of 'Our Hospital' book for £5 at the 'Clubs, Classes & Charities Morning' on Tuesday 17th February - 10am to 1pm in Milford on Sea Community Centre. Everyone is invited to come along.
Any profit arising from the sale of the book will go into the general funds of the League of Hospital & Community Friends , details of which will be announced at the League's AGM on the 11th May in All Saints' Church Hall commencing at 3pm.
On reading the book, one begins to understand why so many residents in the Parish, wish to see the Hospital with its well kept gardens, re-open for the benefit of the community. Buy a copy to discover a special past of our village history.
