Event to celebrate the centenary of Florence Nightingale's death
(1820-1910). A private visit to Florence Nightingaleâ€™s old home, bought and
considerably extended by her parents, much of which is still there. It is now
the Hampshire Collegiate School and, after refreshments, will be a private
tour. Following this visit the delightful church of St Margaret where the
Nightingales worshipped and are buried. A worthwhile medieval building in
itself, it also has interesting Nightingale and Crimean War exhibits. The vicar
will give a talk and show the Nightingale Cope.
