Nursing At Bretby Hall

A Memory of Bretby

I was nursing at Bretby from about 1951 for a couple of years.  Does anyone have any news of Jim Ruddock and Marie?  I lost touch a long time ago.  I believe they went to Canada.

We used to have concerts in the Hall, we also had dances in one of the large rooms and there was a tennis court. So, a busy social life, but we had to work very hard too!
