Personal Announcements

PETER S BENNETT. I’m pleased to announce that I have been discharged from hospital, after 16 weeks, and am now at home. Currently I am able to move around slowly using a zimmer frame, and I shall be subjected to further physiotherapy, hoping for further improvement. Whilst I was in hospital, I was deluged with good wishes from many friends by letter, e-mail, text, menu, card, telephone call and word of mouth. I am very grateful to all those people, as well as the 65 different people and one dog (Marley) who visited me in hospital. I am particularly grateful to my wonderful wife Marion and my close family for their support at a very difficult time.[6098]
