I was resident in Nerston around 1945 was about 9 -10 years old,my time there was not too bad I learned most of my social skills from there and was preferable to living at home with my father and step mother.
The building was split into 3 houses Annieslee/Jennyslee and Betty'slee .
The dormitories were right next to each other,Boys on one side and girls on the other, woe betide anyone who dared to try to speak through the wall toeach other.
there was a chart in the dining room for bed wetters stars for dry beds this was on show for everyone to see.
We had "Porage or
PeaseBrose"for breakfast every morning and stood in a line in the bathroom every week for our dose of Malt and codliver oil.
There were some good time and some bad it was a very strict routine. Would love to hear from any one who was there around that times have loads of memories to share.
