Balidon Fond Memories - a Memory of Yeovil.

I was born on 15th August 1954 at Balidon. I am sure my father told me they had a fishpond as you came into the driveway at the front of the building. When he first came to see me, he went to open the door of a car he must have borrowed, when he caught the sleeve of his jacket and the horn went off and Matron came out of the front door saying "Yes Mr Isaacs we know you have arrived". My father then stepped straight into the pond. Lovely memories of a town sadly changed for the worst.
