Memories of health and sickness are plentiful among out Voices!

​

The doctors came from Stalham and used the surgery building (above left) as their base.

​

We learn about the early days of the  NHS and about how families saved for healthcare before it arrived, about childhood illnesses, mumps, measles, chicken pox and the like.

​

We also hear about farming accidents, and a trip to Great Yarmouth General Hospital for a tonsillectomy.

The picture on the right shows the old Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on the Green:  this was prepared for use as an emergency hospital in the war:  some of our Voices were used as mock casualties in preparation for the real thing!
