London’s St. Bartholomew’s (Barts) hospital this week saw the traditional topping out of the new Maggie’s Centre for cancer care. Organised by contract manager Sir Robert McAlpine, the ceremony saw a piper playing while an evergreen bough was nailed to the highest point of the building. Also in accordance with tradition, “noggins of ale” were involved.
