Memories of Birkenhead, Arrowe Park c1960
In the early 80's my dad was walking our dog in the park when he came across an eagle. Turned out it had been stolen from Colwyn Bay Zoo. He captured it with the dog's lead, ended up in the national press and got £100 reward. My dad died last year but he will ever be remembered in print as the eagle catcher.
I am a Malaysian and I did my PTS training in Arrow Hall, in 1965. With me was another Malaysian girl by the name of Ng. There was a nursing home upstairs and the lecture hall was on the ground floor. We stayed on the first floor. I remember Avril who was our room-mate. Jeanette and Agnes were among some of the students. Sorry I cannot recall their surnames. I hope to revisit Arrow park this October when I visit my daughter in Cambridge and it would be great if I can meet some of my nursing friends.
