My (2) brothers David & Mark Pryce (who have since passed) and I were at
Harpenden from 9/76 – 12/80. I was 5 when I first went into the home. We were
in flat 11 and Sue and Paul Stage were the house-parents, who lived in the flat
upstairs with their own two children Alison and Michael Stage. Some of the
other Children’s names who were actually in care with us whose names I can
remember were Angela Neal, Stephen &
Peter Dorsett and Eugene Thames, Cecil Thames. As far as members’ of staff go I
remember a Mr. Murray, Mr. Spencer, we
had a young german lady as well, I can’t remember her name though. There are also a couple names throughout my file
(possibly members of staff) but I have no recollection of them by names are
Goodman, J.C. Burn and Oxborrow.
I’m looking to connect with former members staff or anyone
who was there during that time, who might remember me or my brothers to fill in
some of the blanks. A couple of people who were in different flats that I
reached out to are so far removed from their time in Harpenden, and want no
parts of it, or they don’t remember me. Unfortunately my photos were lost in a
fire back in 1989, and would also love to see any if there are any floating
around from that time.
P.S. I've just joined this site...not sure where I should've posted. My apologies if it should have been posted somewhere else.
