What year?

 

Are you certain it was in Sheffield as there is a Grove Children's Home in Scawby, Scunthorpe.

Thanks again for your replies. and "anlabystreet" I was in Fullwood cottage homes, it was my first taste of being brought up in childcare. I was there from the age of 3 to 5 years before being moved to Mather Road at Darnal, group home. then being fosterd to a family at Richmond. Luckily with being so young at that time, I only have a few memories of Fullwood. My total time in childcare spans from the age of 3 year and 4 momths to just before my 18th Birthday. The experience was far from good, and I would fight tooth and nail to keep any kid from having to go into care.
