The Friends of Richardson Hospital, Barnard Castle, will hold their annual meeting at the hospital, in Victoria Road, on Wednesday, April 23, at 7.30pm.

Chairman Marie Yarker said: “We would encourage anyone who is interested in the Richardson and its valuable place in the community to come along. We’d especially like to welcome younger people.”

The committee will also be making final arrangements for the next fundraiser, a table top sale at Barnard Castle Methodist Church Hall on Saturday, May 24.

The cost for taking part is £10 a table and further details can be obtained from Mrs Yarker, on 01833-637615.
