Thread Name: Health News on Marian Button (singer from Kent)
Subject: News on Marian Button
I've had one or two enquiries from various sources about the health of Marian Button, traditional singer from Kent. As some of you are obviously aware, Marian suffered what has now been diagnosed as a stroke on Thursday while at Sidmouth Folk Festival. This is just to let you know that she is still in hospital at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Wonford at the moment, and was due to have a scan of some sort either today or tomorrow. There is no news as yet about her returning to the Kent neck of the woods (either hospital or home). As soon as anything further in the way of news occurs, I'll post details here (and on Facebook for those who are friends of mine on there). As far as I understand it from my contact with them, the hospital in question does not have bedside phones, and they cannot divulge information to any except next of kin, so it is not worthwhile ringing them at the moment.
