Christine Bennett - Girl Guides - 1956

Girl Guides on the bridge at Craig-y-nos

Christine Perry ( nee Bennett) has sent in the following story:

"I enjoyed Guides so much, and was so very enthusiastic about guiding activities, that I was promoted to Leader. Three of us were asked to escort the Standard to Abercrave Church so that it could be blessed.

We, of course, needed to have Dr. Williams's permission to go. This was granted and Dr. Williams, and his wife, took us in their car. We were very excited as, for me, this had been the first time I had been outside the hospital grounds in two years.

We had a lovely day but for me the outcome wasn't so good as shortly afterwards, I suffered my third relapse and had to return to bed yet again. "

Her husband Larry says:" Christine took a long time to settle back into home life after coming out of Adelina Patti Hospital and longed to return as she missed the life, would you believe!"

They recently celebrated their Ruby Wedding by going back to Craig-y-nos for a family party.
