A Question Answered

A Memory of Broadstairs

Finding this website I think has answered a question I have pondered on over the years. I remember having Scarlet Fever when I was about 5 - 7 years old, after which I was sent to Broadstairs on convalescence. I never knew where I was sent and only remember a little of what happened while I was there. The only definite thing I remember, is having to drink all of my cup of tea, even the grouts, yuk!

I have often wondered what the name of the place was and now believe it must have been St. Mary's. I intend to go to Broadstairs again and see if anything triggers my memory.
