A Memory of Broadstairs

my memory of the home were going there twice. The first time from St.Marys hospital in Paddington Green. I was about 9 or 10 and my mum went to see the Almoner and i was taken to Broadstairs I am sure it was St.Marys home. I remember being given UV treatment in a circle of other kids with goggles. We had no choice. I also wet the bed and was made to go to another room for a few hours in the night. Also having to go asleep in beds outside the main entrance in the afternoon. My parents came once and i remember they started arguing on the beach.
