Anne deGroot

Anne’s story begins with her mother coming to Hull from Guyana as a nurse in 1959 and working throughout her career at Hull Royal Infirmary. Anne’s one visit to Guyana was clouded by the absence of a TV! She takes us through a vivid recollection of her life from her early memories in Park Street through her teenage years and into adulthood where she had a plethora of jobs before settling into social work. Much of her recollection talks of a shared experience that many people of a certain age will identify with! She talks of her contentment of being born, bred and staying in Hull throughout her life.
