Hillsborough and Wadsley wouldn't be the same without Walter. At 84 he still "does his rounds" with conkers, sweets etc. I haven't seen him since midsummer as I live mostly in North Lincs. now, but I try to keep him supplied with his favourite Hamlet cigars, at least when I've recently had a duty-free allowance. Walter has been mentioned in a number of threads, and he has his own thread here (note the photo link in post #21).

Hi,

 

Does anyone remember Hope Powell who was a patient at Middlewood during the 1940, 50s and part of the 60s at least. She was my fathers first wife and I know nothing about her except that she was a patient there.
