In the suburb of Westbury-on-Trym, three miles from the centre of , a spacious and well-built house was acquired by the Home in 1943. Two family groups are accommodated in the original house, now more than 100 years old, and one group lives in a newer house in the grounds, Perkins House, built in 1954. The two houses stand in gardens of great beauty and interest.

Life in Holmwood.

I spent some years in Holmwood with my younger sister. Her name was Jasmine Dahd and she stayed at Holmwood for some years after I left. I used to visit her there. She died a few years ago but her memories of Holmwood were certainly NOT happy ones. There was, however, one lady who was VERY special to her and they stayed in touch until the day she died. Her name was/is Trisha and I know others remember Trisha. Even when I was there, c.1966 - 68/9, we were not allowed to go into the copse although that's not to say we didn't. My best friend was Godfrey Marshall who, I later learned, was an accountant in London. Anyone out there remember us? I went by the name of Kevin Shepherd or Dahd.

Stupid question to ask but where all the people emplyed by Holmwood Sisters of the Church ? That includes cleaners, kitchen staff and carers.

Laslty are any of them still alive ? My sister recently told me that Sister Doreen passed away afew years ago which was terribly sad

I just want ot say how sorry I am to hear of the loss of your sister.

My family were at Holmwood from 1973-1980 and we did know Jasmine because she was in the same group as us, the Brown group. I shall not pretend I knew her inside our but what I do remember of her is that she was carefree around the home and its location.

I also remember the Care Worker Trisha. What always struck me was that she had curly brown hair and always wore flip flops everywhere she went
