Brenda Bates- early 1950's
Barbara Paines ( O'Donnell) is determined to track down as many girls as she can from those early days in Craig-y-nos.
After much searching through the phone book she found Brenda Bates of Morley St, Barry.
But Brenda is in a residential home. She rang her.
"I tried to speak to her about her childhood in Craig-y-nos. She has no memory of her time there."
So it was with regret that Barbara rang yesterday to inform me of both Brenda's discovery and her mental decline.
