St George’s Hospital 1818 – 1995
There were a variety of indoor social activities over the years for patients to enjoy and participate in. Many of these events took place in the recreation hall including Cinema and Dances once a week each. Fancy Dress/Shows and Pantos organised and put on by all grades of staff. The hall was a central hub for many varied activities. Before the Social Club was built it was also used for Staff Social Activities, Dances etc.,
The Christmas Party for Staff Children, the Badminton Section and was also used as an occasional venue by the Stafford Film Society.
These are a few Photos of some of those Patient Activities through the years.
