Hospital Days - a Memory of Winchmore Hill.

I did part of my nursing training at Highlands hospital in the late 50’s. I had lived in Winchmore Hill most of my childhood, certainly all through the war years, although I was sent to boarding school in Weybridge at 7 years of age so a lot of my time was spent away from home. I have happy memories of the end of war years as a child, the VE and VJ celebrations with dancing in the streets and street parties. Blake Cooks shop where my mum bought her groceries. Sainsbury’s which was not a supermarket then of course. It is good to remember those times now I am in 80’s!
