Freemasons Transform Hospital Courtyard

Patients at Milton Keynes University Hospital are benefitting from the transformation of one of the hospital’s busiest courtyards thanks to the Buckinghamshire Freemasons.

This summer volunteers from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Buckinghamshire redeveloped the courtyard garden outside the main restaurant – to provide a bright, colourful and relaxing area for patients, visitors and staff.

The redeveloped courtyard was officially opened on Thursday September 1st with the hospital’s chairman Baroness Wall of New Barnet and Buckinghamshire’s Provincial Grand Master, Gordon Robertson, in attendance. Also present were hospital staff, patients, governors and green-fingered members of the Provincial Grand Lodge.

Hospital chairman Baroness Wall of New Barnet is delighted with the finished project.

She said: “People donating their time to our hospital is hugely valued by patients, visitors and staff. We are so grateful to volunteers from the Buckinghamshire Freemasons – including our own hospital governor Vincent Leiu, of Longueville Lodge – who have together spent many weeks and months working hard to renovate the area. Thank you!”
