Our first talk at Brooklands Care Home, Drayton

On Wednesday this week, 23rd August 2017, Joe and I rolled up to the award winning Brooklands Care Home in Drayton, just outside Norwich, to fulfil our engagement to speak to residents and staff about Escaping Hitler.  This was our first venture into such a community and to be fair, it was not without its challenges, but we received a wonderful welcome, the book cover was on display everywhere we looked, there was a good group of people to address, and everyone was engaged while Joe gave his 30 minute address about his childhood in Nazi Germany.  I was even given flowers and Joe received a bottle of fizz as a thank you.  Book sales were brisk and we came away thinking what a wonderful home it was for those who can no longer care for themselves.  Our thanks to the manager and her staff for being so attentive and thoughtful.
