Nova Scotia to be precise.

I'm Marg, and my Mum, Dad, sister Brenda & I were in Balgownie Hostel from Jan 1957 till Dec 1958 (Had to get special permission to return to UK before our 2 yrs.were quite up.) So my main interest will be in the Balgownie forum. Everyone here seems to have been there later than we were, but maybe there's someone who will remember us.

Marg (nee Brown)

Hi Marg and welcome to our forums.
I was going to say ďplease donít hesitate, feel free and join inĒ but youíve already beaten me to it. Iíve just been reading one of your posts and you had me in stitches. Laughing

I hope for you that one day someone does stumble across these forums and remember you and your family, you never know because itís a small world these days, especially with the internet etc.

Smile
