A lick of paint to turn sick kids frowns upside down

Kingston Hospital’s Sunshine Ward has remodelled two of its cubicles. Children being treated at Kingston Hospital can now go on an imaginary African Safari to see lions, tigers, giraffes and leopards, all on their road to recovery.

Momentum is a charity that supports children and their families in Surrey and South West London, who have cancer and life-limiting conditions. This charity kindly helped two Kingston Hospital isolation rooms receive a much needed revamp. They invited local artist, Amanda Leggatt to the hospital to brighten up the décor, with images of African animals, the sea side, Ferris wheels and even a stick of candy floss on the walls of the Paediatrics Ward.

Maggie Clancy, Head of Paediatrics said the new rooms will definitely help lift the spirits of the kids during their stays:

“Already I have seen so many children’s faces light up when they see our new bright and colourful rooms.”


The isolation rooms are used by children who are vulnerable to infection, such as children with cancer. Children can stay in the rooms for as long as two weeks, so it is important that the room is a welcoming and warm environment.

Tributes paid to former mace-bearer

Sutton Council’s former mace-bearer has died at the age of 71.

Richard Beale, who served in the role for 15 years and received the MBE in January 2004 for services to local government, passed away on Wednesday 11 August.

During his time as mace-bearer, he served 17 mayors and attended more than 400 engagements across the borough every year.

Sutton Council Leader, Cllr Sean Brennan, said: “Richard had great dedication to duty and was always willing to go that extra mile to ensure that outside engagements ran smoothly.

He ensured that our mayors carried out their role with due ceremony and dignity for the office, while providing a friendly face to the many local groups he met on a daily basis.

He carried out his duties with a quiet grace and good humour and was extremely well respected by all councillors, regardless of political party.”


Cllr Brennan added: “The post of mace bearer involves working long, unsociable hours, which Richard cheerfully undertook, ensuring that all of our mayors received an extremely high level of care and support.”

Before his role with the council, Mr Beale, from Belmont, worked as a railway station supervisor.

Historically, the role of the mace bearer was to protect the mayor against attacks.

In more modern times, it became a ceremonial post involving assisting and advising mayors on their official duties.
