RCN Centenary Tea Party

This year the Royal College of Nursing celebrates a centenary as the voice of nursing. The college grew from a meeting of a few likeminded Nurses in 1916 to the Member led Voice of 435,000 Nurses from all areas of care.

To mark the occasion of its 100th  Anniversary, local branches have been putting on celebratory events. In Bristol, a centenerary tea party was held in the heart institute. Hosted by the Greater Bristol Branch Chair and President with the Regional Director Jeannett Martin, the tea party welcomed all.

Janet Plenty, peadiatric staff nurse, attended the tea party; "Thank you so much RCN Bristol and especially Jeanette Jones for putting on such a wonderful afternoon tea! It was ab fab! Loved everything! Beautiful china, cakes and music. I think there should be one every month for all the hardworking nurses in the trust!"
