The Hospital celebrated its Centenary year with a series of events and activities. To mark the 100 year milestone, a paediatrician named Dr Dilys Craven presented the “Pap Cup” to the Hospital. This was a silver feeding vessel used in the early 19th century to feed infants. At the time, it was used to mix wet bread with beer, milk and honey. The Pap Cup went on to become an annual award for the next 10 years, presented to the most outstanding student nurse in practical nursing.
