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.
