Where Is She Now?

A Memory of Bedford

When I spent a couple of years training as an RNMS at Bromham Hospital, I used to live in Nurses Quarters at 1 Albany Road, Embankment, Bedford. I celebrated my 21st Birthday whilst there & my parents brought my brother & sister-in-law down & we had a meal at The County Hotel. My parents allowed me to invite my girlfriend at that time to the meal. Her name was Lynn Mathers who lived in Rothsay Gardens & had a sister called Sandra. In August 1970, Lynns parents kindly invited me to go stay with them at her grandmother's on the Isle of Wight at a place called Nettlestone. It was during this stay that I was fortunate to attend the now legendary Isle of Wight Festival. The last I heard was that the family left Bedford to move to somewhere in Herefordshire. It would be great to get back in touch with her again.
