A reunion for Bellshill Maternity Hospital staff has proven so popular tickets sold out in just four days.

Organised by former midwife Hazel McGloin after interest was shown on the hospital’s Facebook group, it takes place in the Castle Rooms, Uddingston, on February 26.

Such was the overwhelming response that Hazel is already thinking ahead to holding a second reunion in 2017 at a bigger venue.
