It started with an email in 2019 from Mr Philip Brodie (son of Mrs Brodie, Farthing Court, Apt.54):
It was lovely chatting with you last night and learning about your great interest in the residents who have incredible life histories, and the ambition that you all have to enhance the “people element” of your roles.
Following on from there, please find attached as promised the chapter in the book, produced in 2003 by our synagogue about members of my mother’s generation, with her piece written in the first person. I know this will be interesting to you, and perhaps a number of residents.
Kind regards to you all,
Then Yasmin had an idea…
I was reading a short autobiography last night, written by a previous Owner, that had been included in a book called “Book of Memories”.
I had a thought, why not compile a collection of short “life stories” of Farthing Court Owners and put them in a book for present and future Owners to read.
Please enjoy some fascinating stories and photos from our collection!
