When we were at Fairfields in 1978-1979, we went to Filey for a holiday.  I can't remember much about it, but I have got photos of me riding a donkey and 'Aunt' Freda walking in a funny way!  Happy times.

Hi Syvia,

Forgot to check here regularly! have just noticed the photo taken outside Wellfield, to answer your questions I believe I am at the front in a blue jumper and shorts! I also think my younger brothers David and Raymond are also in the picture, David to the left with Freda Bell behind and Raymond hiding in the middle!

Used to spend hours having a sing along with Dave in a small room behind the play room.

I was 8 years old when I first arrived just before Christmas 1970, the picture must be 1971, I believe we all moved to number 4 in 1972.

Making Christmas decorations with a lady that used to come was great fun.

Are you in the picture? If so, which one are you?

I love reminiscing about my time in Harrogate.

Hi Jacksr
I am hoping the post I am reading is in relation to Childhoodmemories. My apologies if I have got it wrong. I would appreciate it if it was possible to ask Sister/Auntie Sylvia if she new Sister Milly or Miss Faith and whether they are still alive, as they looked after my brother and I in what I believe to have been house number eight between 1962 -1967?  I think that Sister/Auntie Sylvia looked after my two brothers and sister named Christopher, AdeKunle and Adeola around 1962 - 1967? Thanks Jackie,

Dot (dizzy dot ?)

What years do think you went to Scarborough? I don't know what era you were at Fairfield but certainly we went to Scarborough in the 1960's and we "camped" in the large basement community hall beneath Westborough Methodist church.
I live in Scarborough with my family 1970 -1973 and took the opportunity to go to Westborough church and actually met a few people who remembered our visits.
It was a lovely seaside place to go to as were Whitby and Ramsey I.O.M.

Hello again Dot

I now see from your postings that you were in No 8 during the 1970's so the only time we might have met would be during reunions when I brought my Sprite caravan with wife Janet and three little sons. We pitched just behind No. 8 and my boys had a wonderful time playing with the other children.
We came for 3 or 4 years probably 1970 - 1977.
I was in No.8 1942 -1944 before moving to No.2 with Sister Edith and with my 2 sisters who had gone into No.2 when we all arrived on 30th May 1942.
Yes there is a Knaresborough on the road to York just about 5 miles from the town.

Hi Phillip, I was wondering whether you knew a girl from No. 3 called Joy Hill? She may have been there during your time as she was older than me. She was so kind to me when she visited the reunions but I lost touch with her. I would love to find out whether she is okay etc. Have you heard anything about her?
Thanks Sue Relton

Hello Sue

Joy was married for many years whilst trying to cope as a paraplegic. Her husband who I think was a musician devoted his life to her care.She had worked in the offices at The Royal Baths at one time. Sadly she died quite a few years ago.
She was very much my generation and it is not unkind to say she was the epitome of a "Tomboy". She played sport with the boys and was a very successful cricketer. She also became active in the Reserve Forces and I think had her car accident when returning from an army activity.
Di Ward would be able to give you a more accurate account.
Yes she was in N0. 3 next door to us in No. 2.

Hi David, I am so sorry to hear of Joy's death, I wish this site had been around earlier as I would have been able to tell her how she made me feel special and was always so kind to me. I remember Sister Anne telling me of her accident but when i was younger, keeping in touch with old nch friends didn't seem important. I was eager to put the past behind me and be part of a 'normal' family. How I regret it now!  Thank you so much for the lovely picture of her and the one of her with the table tennis club is how I remember her. As you say she was a tomboy like me and when she visited us at reunions she would whisk me off on her scooter for very 'hairy' rides.I also read that Raymond Crisp has died, he was another one of my guardian angels [except when I pinched his bicycle pump and he chased me to Beckwithshaw! Truly happy days. Thanks again, Sue
