Mr and Mrs Hughes came to Chippy in 1953/54 and took over from the Matron. We girls were sent up to the Big House and I remember being in Sister Helena's family. my 1st boyfriend was a boy with the most bluest eyes I had ever seen and I played tabletennis with him. His name was/is Martin Beaumont. In 1956 I was fostered out to a Mr and Mrs Bond of Wooton Bassett, Wilts. Then I came up to Lincolnshire in 1958 and have been here ever since.
