I was in Styal from about 1958-60.  I remember having to have a sleep on the camp beds and hearing the teacher with the false leg walking around.  Someone told me he kept our homework in his false leg. I remember my first night really clearly at Styal, I was terrified and someone, I think it was a nurse, telling me to stop crying.  I didn't know why I was there or how long I would be there.  I remember having to wear a striped dress and having to eat porridge which I hated. 
Jill - you asked for information on Layinka Hooker.  I would love to tell you about her.  She was a very close friend for many years and unfortunately she died two years ago.  If you email me I will get back to you.  She talked a lot about her time in Styal.
Manchester Chat / Latest TFGM Update
« Last post by celeste on 11:13:36, 31/12/20 »

Following yesterday’s government announcement, Greater Manchester has today moved into Tier 4 coronavirus restrictions. You can find out more about the restrictions and what these mean for you on the government's Tier 4 guidance page.
Tier 4 was introduced just before Christmas in response to the rapid increase in the new variant of coronavirus, which is now spreading across the country, with the average rate of infection having doubled in the past two weeks.
I want to let you know what this means for travel in our region.
In Tier 4 areas, government guidance is that you must stay at home, except for work (if you can’t work at home), education, medical appointments, caring responsibilities, essential shopping or outdoor exercise. You also mustn’t leave or enter Greater Manchester other than for these reasons.
If you do need to travel, please try to stay local, reduce the number of journeys you make, and walk or cycle if you can.
If you need to use public transport, use TfGM’s website to plan your journey and please try to avoid busier times, like the morning and afternoon peaks. Allow extra time for your journey and try to take quieter routes. TfGM’s Travelshops and interchanges will remain open.
Please help to keep yourselves and others safe when travelling - you must wear a face covering unless you’re exempt, please wash your hands before and after travel and use contactless where possible.
If you’re driving, please avoid sharing your car with anyone outside your household or support bubble.
This is a critical time for the NHS, so please do your bit to continue to help save lives by following government advice and helping us spread the safe travel messages among your family and friends.

It is designed to break your spirit. No family, no friends, no outdoor activities, no social gatherings or trips to the pub, no workouts in the gym, and no entertainment.

But, please, do not consider suicide as an option. That is precisely what they want you to do.
