Adrian Eggleton, Deputy Director of Estates and Facilities, ²gether NHS Foundation Trust, joined colleagues to mark the 60th anniversary of the Health Estate and Facilities Management Association (HefmA) South West branch.

Adrian, who is Chair of the branch, joined CEO John Thatcher in planting a tree at Eastwood Park, Gloucestershire. HefmA has had long-established links with Eastwood Park, as it was formerly the national training centre for all NHS engineers, although it now operates independently.

The event was combined with a day’s educational seminar on the latest best practice and safety guidelines and marked six decades of the branch sharing estates’ and facilities’ best practice in support of patient care.  Many HefmA members would have undertaken their apprenticeship skills training at Eastwood Park at the start of their careers and now return in the present day for further skills development and management courses.

The tree planting was significant as the Regional Engineers Association chose to plant a stand of trees (seen to the right of the picture) in 1981 to commemorate their 25th anniversary of the formation of the branch.  In the early 1990s, the South West branch was absorbed into the Health Estate and Facilities Management Association (HefmA).

Adrian Eggleton commented:  “The new generation of Estates and Facilities managers in the South West have chosen to plant this commemorative tree at Eastwood Park today in recognition of the historic links and to celebrate the new strategic partnership the South West Branch has with Eastwood Park Training in providing bespoke educational seminars.  We are delighted it will be here for many more years to come and will eventually be moved closer to the new training centre being built on the estate.”
