Luton & Dunstable Hospital is celebrating its 80th birthday next month and is looking for stories from St Albans and Harpenden.
The hospital will turn 80 years old on Thursday, February 14, and is keen to hear from patients and staff who have used the hospital over the decades.
They would especially like to hear from people with generations of children born at the hospital, who have worked there or, if possible, a local resident who was a patient when the hospital first opened in 1939.
The hospital was opened by Queen Mary (the Queen’s grandmother) and was built, equipped and maintained as a voluntary organisation for its first nine years, before the creation of the NHS in 1948.
On the day, the hospital will have live music, an exhibition of the hospital’s history, special guests, a service of celebration and a birthday cake competition.
