Thames (NZ): New mural and more to follow at Thames Hospital

Its finally done, another item ticked off the Thames Hospital 150 checklist. Apologies for the poor photographic effort, but here is the latest addition to Te Whare Hauora o te Kauaeranga - Thames Hospital.

The 4.4m mural shows Shortland Town at the end of 1868, with the Thames Diggers' Hospital on the far right (surrounded by a fence). The mural is located on the north wall, off the main foyer, from the Mackay Street car park. The 'special wall' encourages visitors, patients and staff to wander along the corridor and view all the photographs and memorabilia on display.

This brilliant design is by Clint at KMG. Plus special thanks to Clint and Reon who worked late to apply the print to the wall - a job well done by KMG Print, Thames.

This Tuesday 30 October 2018 at 10am, five framed Korowai will be blessed and added to the Hospital's collection of taonga.
