Care Home for Children, Wootton Bassett January 1943
Posted by: Susan
During WW2, around January 1943 I was put into a small care home for children in Wootton Bassett. I was not quite 5yrs. old so I have no real memories of the place except that the house must have been fairly central as I think it was quite an old house facing onto a street. I wonder whether there is anyone who can recall such a place, exactly where it was, what it might have been called or who ran it. I would be grateful for any suggestions, please. Thank you.

Looking for Walcot Friends
Posted by: Sylvia
I awoke this morning wondering about some of my old school friends from Swindon and of the bizarre things we got up to at such an early age (9 or 10)- ie: selling raffle tickets door to door,then buying cakes etc with the proceeds. It was Barbara Tomkin's idea if my memory serves correctly, I'm sure she must be an entreprenuer today. My name is Sylvia Foster (nee Brown) and attended Lanesmead primary. I lived at 34 Somerville Road, Walcot, we often played at Sussex Square, I loved the library. We moved away for a couple of years then returned, I attended Walcot Secondary (1969-70). My parents managed the Bulldog Off-Licence before sailing off to Australia in 1971 where I am today. Some of the names I remember from school and surroundings: Lucy Adler, Tina Hunt, Susan Sturgeon, Helen Smith, Barbara Tomkins, Michelle Dingley,(another) Sylvia Brown, Leroy Hogan, Nigel Causton. If you are out there and would like to email, please do, I would love to hear from any of you.
