Galsworthy residents support local exhibition

An exciting exhibition exploring the role of Nobel Prize winner and playwright John Galsworthy was enjoyed by the staff and residents of Galsworthy House this week. John Galsworthy was a social campaigner for disabled servicemen in the First World War and may be best known for writing ‘The Forsythe Saga’. His former home is now Galsworthy House and the producer of the exhibition, Alison Ramsey, recently visited and chatted with the residents about their experience of living at the famous home. She was so impressed by their tales of the First World War that she asked permission to use some of their stories and photographs in the exhibition. The residents and staff were invited as special guests to attend the exhibition at the Rose Theatre, Kingston, which was also attended by the local mayor and the Military Wives Choir. Located on Kingston Hill overlooking Richmond Park, Galsworthy House provides residential and nursing care for up to 64 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
