Convalescent Home “Removing”

Workmen were busily engaged yesterday at the Godfrey Walker Convalescent Home. High street. Conisborough, moving furniture and fittings from the home to Sheffield.

The home, a branch of the Sheffield Infirmary, is being closed, and the services removed to Sheffield.

Used as a convalescent home for many years, has 25 beds and the patients have been convalescent children from Sheffield district. The hospital has been staffed by a sister-in-charge and a number of nurses. It is expected that the workmen will have completed their removal work by to-morrow.

Officials and members of Conisborough Urban Council have been inspecting the property during the last few days, and it is expected that some mention of the future of the home will be made at to-night’s meeting of the Urban Council.

The home, which at one time was known as the Priory, was the gift of Lady Grainger. of Scarborough. formerly Mrs. Godfrey Walker.

It was the residence of her ladyship, and the late Mr. Godfrey Walker.
