Nurses from the Nightingale Fellowship met at Embley today to commemorate the 111th anniversary of the death of Florence Nightingale.
After laying flowers at Miss Nightingale’s grave at St Margaret’s Church in East Wellow, the group spent time in the Manor House and grounds of Embley Park, the childhood home of Florence Nightingale. Afterwards they visited Romsey Abbey to view ‘The Calling Window’ and attend a short thanksgiving service acknowledging the work of nurses around the world and all those who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Nightingale Fellowship is a registered charity for the sole benefit of its members. The membership comprises nurses and midwives who studied at the Nightingale Training School at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, founded by Florence Nightingale in 1860.
