Bristol Royal Infirmary Old Building closes its doors

Last week a service was held in All Saints Chapel in thanksgiving for the life of the Bristol Royal Infirmary Old Building. After more than 300 years of providing care for patients in Bristol and beyond, the Bristol Royal Infirmary Old Building has closed its doors.


We were pleased to welcome Rt Reverend Dr Lee Rayfield, Suffragan Bishop of Swindon as he lead the decommissioning service of All Saints Chapel. Pictured below with Rev Jillianne Norman and Rev Brenda Dowie.



Although it was a sad occasion for some, staff from over the years enjoyed sharing their fondest memories of their time working in one of the UK's oldest hospitals.  Graham Weeks, who is the longest serving staff member in the Old Building, has worked there since 1973!

The Above & Beyond choir boosted the good feeling with their beautiful harmonies as everyone joined to say goodbye to a very significant and important building and chapel.
