''I was at Stelling Hall in Stocksfield too

Hi Dawn.

I remember you very well and your sisters Faith and Hope.
If I'm not mistaken, your then surname was, Smith.

My name is Brenda Blake, you may remember my sister, Denise.

I loved my time at Stelling Hall and when it came to my sister and I having to leave to go home, I wanted to stay.

We resided in West Lodge, looked after by Mr. and Mrs. Whitehead.  Their daughter was called Heather, I don't remember her having a brother though.  She was studying Nursing at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Gateshead. 

I remember all of those activities too, croquet, great fun, long lazy summer afternoons.  I remember also we used to go roller skating down the long drive way to the main entrance of the Home.

Do you remember Francis and Annette Mc Glade and Carole Graham at all.

The memories never leave you, that Gibbs dry cake toothpaste in a round tin and Bird's Instant Whip, Butter Scotch image.

There was a Chapel, it was around the back of the Laundry going to West Lodge, go through the arch as if going to catch that old school bus, on one of those sides, can't remember if it was on the right or left hand side now.

I think most of the kids went to Corbridge C of E School.  We had a Mrs. Fairless and Mr. Deckell, not too sure on the last spelling.

Used to walk about 1 mile to the nearest village to spend our pocket money.
Church every Sunday morning, the Rev. Gun, we used to call him Mr. Bang Bang.

I remember Derek Bailey.

Do you remember Maurice at all ?.

Loved those days, was so happy.

I live in South Africa now, have done since I was 19 years old.  I occasionally come back on holiday, my last visit was 2015 - August.

I hope I get to hear from you soon or anyone else who think they might know me.

Best regards
