Hi Vanessa. I do remember you. How's things with you?  I too lived there from around 1973 to 1976.
 The boys there were Peter, who was into clocks lol as I remember, Chris who has a mohican/feathered haircut, and a fancy jacket with something on the back (logo/face/ etc) but I cant remember. Patrick, yes, just come to me now, umm a Robbie I think too.  Girls there were, you of course, I remember that you returned for a quick visit too, Helen, Susan who loved horses, Karen L.  Sharon E. (met her at a shop checkout which was nice to chat for a minute). The Staff were the Bristows with their son also Steve (I think), Oh also Peter who had a disability on his right side. Then came the Stacey's with their dog Bruce  (German Shepherd), Also Alan Jones, he had a beard, Tim Preece.

I would love to catch up and natter sometime and see how your life blossomed. Well, hope to hear from you or anyone else from the home, to you all, take care.  Steve

Hi Coronation Lady,
                          I was in Murray House in about 1956 but before that in Oakfields Wokingham for about five years just around the corner from Station Rd, Murray House was very small in compared to Oakfields,it was like two 1930,s semi detached houses together where as Oakfields was your typical childrens home like a large mansion in its own grounds,both childrens homes now have been turned into homes for the elderly,you could contact the local library to find out where the records are kept as you would be allowed to ask for them,mine were in Reading but most destroyed,you maybe lucky,if i can help please pm me.
