Convalescent - a Memory of Woodhouse Eaves.
I was in the convalescent home around 1954-1955 and have some memories of my stay. My parents would visit at the weekends and any goodies that were brought had to be handed over to staff to be shared amongst the other children, I remember my mum not being very happy with this. Also we had to have spoonfuls of what I think was castor oil and something else in the mornings, maybe rosehip syrup - not very nice.
Does anybody else have any memories of staying there?
