Nurse Emery And Caretaker Collis

A Memory of Bishopstoke

I remember Nurse Emery on her pushbike delivering both of my brothers at home.  We lived in St Mary's Road, behind the church.
I also went to Bishopstoke infants school and was duly frightened by the caretaker, a Mr Collis with a built up boot on his foot - scared me half to death when I was a kid.
Miss Starr was my teacher, she also taught my 2 brothers and then later on taught my two eldest sons.
My grandfather also told me that in the Mount grounds there was a plant or a tree taken from every country in the world........anyone else hear this?
