Relayed from Portishead Methodist
Church, Near Bristol
Although Methodist Services were first held in Portishead more than seventy years ago, it was not until
1886 that the foundation stone of the present church was laid. The Jubilee of the opening of the church will be celebrated in May, 1937. Most of the original trustees were well-known Bristol business men and their names were household words in Bristol Methodism.
An Appeal on behalf of THE PORTH AND DISTRICT HOSPITAL by Lady THOMAS
The Porth and District Hospital was opened in 1895, and at present it has seventy-two beds. A new OutPatients' Department and Nurses' Quarters are now in course of erection. As the hospital is situated in a distressed area, its income, which is mainly derived from voluntary contributions, has been greatly diminished and money is badly needed for the modernisation of the X-ray department and for alterations to the existing premises.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to The Sectetary, [address removed]
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
