New digital police memorial launched

The names of Surrey and Sussex police officers and staff who have died on duty will be commemorated on a new digital memorial.

The new memorial which was launched on Tuesday is to honour the sacrifice of those from our Police service who have lost their lives.

The website will publish the names and photographs of those police officers and staff who died on that particular day with a short citation.

The memorial was created by the Police Arboretum Memorial Trust, in partnership with Twitter UK.

East Surrey Hospital has been named the best dementia-friendly hospital in England at the national Dementia Care Awards. 

A range of improvements for people living with the condition have been made across the hospital in recent years. An ambitious dementia strategy focussing on key areas has led to strengthened governance and better data. The hospital uses the Butterfly Scheme which ensures that patients receive the right support.  Staff have also introduced dementia leads in various areas and enlisted the support of volunteers to support activities on the wards. A dementia friendly garden has transformed part of the hospital; the Camomile Courtyard is part funded by Charity donations and provides a relaxing space away from the hospital’s buildings. 

Michael Wilson, Chief Executive of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust paid tribute to everyone involved in delivering the improvements.

London To Brighton Veteran Car Run: Man Sadly Dies In A Collision

A man taking part in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run has sadly died following a collision between his vintage car and a lorry.  

The 80 year old man, driving a 1903 Knox Runabout Old Porcupine vintage car, died at the scene of the crash on the M23 near Hooley yesterday morning.  His female passenger was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The man’s next of kin have been informed.

The road was closed in both directions while the air ambulance and emergency services attended the scene. 

Organisers of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run have confirmed that the car was taking part in the annual event. They said the car had “left the route, which does not include the M23, when the crash took place”.
