CASTLE RISING: Celebrations at Trinity
The festive spirit was felt as residents donned traditional scarlet cloaks and black Welsh-style hats for the Founder’s Day celebrations at Trinity Hospital in Castle Rising.
A roast turkey lunch was served after a traditional church service and clerk to the trustees, Richard Waite, said: “It’s like Christmas lunch in February.”
Founder’s Day remembers the endowment of the hospital by Henry Howard, Earl of Northampton, in 1614. His descendant and current trustees’ chairman, Lord Greville Howard, attended the celebrations.
The original almshouses have now been converted into flats for single women who are over 55, of good character and able to live independently. Present residents include Dorothy Moon, 91, pictured front, whose daughter-in-law, Kathy Moon, cooked the special lunch.
