Edith Brough Home - a Memory of Whickham.

We lived right next to the Edith Brough Home. The entrance was next to the bus stop where I used to wait in all weathers to travel into Newcastle. i think I remember the names Doreen and Bobby Futers and I remember a red haired girl called Gertrude Woodhall. The children seemed happy and I have a vague memory of going there once and being in a huge kitchen!
