Reunion at Barts Fountain

Reunions

A reunion is a perfect way to rekindle old friendships and check in on how your friends’ lives have been progressing.

We’ve pulled together some advice that has been gathered over the years to help your reunion go off without a hitch.

You can also promote your reunion on our site and read about reunions from yesteryear.

Due to a very generous bequest, we are able to offer some financial support to help with organised reunions. Please contact the League Treasurer via email: treasurer@bartsleagueofnurses.org

Information for your set regarding the advantages of becoming a League member can be arranged if you contact us in advance. We have leaflets, business cards and pens available, on request. The Trust Archivist will help with who was in your set.
Tel: 020 3465 5798 or email: barts.archives@bartshealth.nhs.uk

 

Hospital tours & gift shop

It is no longer possible to organise a tour of the hospital as the department responsible for this has been disbanded.

The Guild Shop is situated on the ground floor of the King George V Building and is open Monday – Friday from 8 am – 4 pm.

It may be possible to arrange for the shop to open on a Saturday. If you would like this, please either telephone them on 020 3465 6382 or email bartsguild@aol.com. Please also copy Steve Bench (cs.hornets@googlemail.com) to this request as he will ensure a volunteer is available if at all possible.

 

Promoting your reunion

If you’d like to promote your reunion on the website please provide us with the necessary details for the reunion. We also welcome reports and photos of your set reunion. We are happy to feature these on both the website and our social media channels. We can also forward these to the editor of the League News for inclusion in the next issue.
