NHS Borders served afternoon tea and nostalgia at its most recent retirement event at Darnick Village Hall.

The event was an opportunity for many retired employees to catch up with old colleagues, over a cup of tea and a scone and old photo albums provided by The Exhibition of Peel Hospital.

John Raine, Chairman at NHS Borders gave thanks to the retirees on behalf of his board for all the years of hard work by saying, “Those attending represent 203 years of service to the Borders community. It is important for the Health Board to recognise the dedication of those who have recently retired, many with long career service, and to say a big thank you for the contribution they have made.”
