Valerie Brent- talk

Valerie Brent, retired nurse s and author of " Life isn't all kiwi fruit and oranges " will be talking about her time as a children nurse at Craig-y-nos during the 1940s this Monday evening in Oystermouth.

"It is highly probable that there will be people in the audience with connections to Craig-y-nos in the days when it was a childrens sanatorium," says Valerie.
Her talk will be to the MEG group ( Monday Evening Group) of All Saints Church, Oystermouth, Mumbles.

She will be illustrating her talk with an extensive photographic album compiled from childrens photos at the time.
The album has been put together by Dr Carole Reeves Outreach Historian with The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, University College London.
