Hello all,
I was in Highfield in the late 60s early 70s and one of the few memories I have is of christmas time.
The home made it a very special time I'm sure as I can remember xmas eve when santa would ride round the oval on a trailer ringing his bell and waking up to a load of gifts at the end of my bed. It brings a tear to my still.

Hi Bob,
             I am afraid that the Santa you speak of was still way up north in my time - Asfar as Harrogate to be exact.   We still had super Christmasses  but no noisy hooligans riding around the Oval on the gardner's trolley.devil

Hi Bob,

Yes I remember Christmas at Highfield at the time you speak of. It was very special time indeed. It certainly made up for us children that never went home to family. It has an emotional effect on me too.

I was in Harpenden January 1966; age 8, almost 9 until July 1969. I remember a big sack of toys every Christmas. I also remember Janet who I shared a bedroom with getting out of bed to peek at her gifts and banging her head on the door. She was crying with the pain but had to stifle it as she jumped back into bed before Sister came down the hall to see what was going on.

Peggy from Finland 1966 ish

I wondered if any of you remember a nice and kind young lady from Finland. I think her role was something of an auxiliary worker. I was her boyfriend briefly and used to pick her up from the home every evening and supposed to bring her back by 10.30 or big trouble she said. We were always back late but she always seemed to be let off. She loved working there.
