Yes, I remember Sister Fiona Fletcher who transferred from the NCH Holmwood Bristol branch to NCH Chief Office at Highbury.
Sister Jean Gray joins Executive
For the first time in the history of the NCH, a member of the Sisterhood Order became a member of the NCH Executive Committee.
Sister Jean Gray, Staffing Secretary, was appointed at a meeting of the NCH General Committee on Wednesday 21 April 1971.
Sister Jean had spent most of her working life with the Home. After a few months at Alresford branch, she spent a short time with the branch in her home city of Bristol before taking the one year course at Highbury in 1949.
She was ordained into the Sisterhood two years later when she was working at the Birmingham branch. In 1954 Sister Jean was transferred back to Bristol to be in charge of the newly-built Perkins House at Holmwood, which had been given to the Home by an American supporter.
Ten years later she was made Sister-in-charge of Bristol branch. After gaining the Advanced Certificate in Residential Child Care at Newcastle University, Sister Jean joined the Home's Chief Office Staff at Highbury in October 1970 as Staffing Officer.
I also remember Sister Doreen Cousins who left residential work to be come a Social Worker at the NCH South West Regional Office that was located at Holmwood, Westbury on Trym, Bristol.
