HISTORICAL INFORMATION Perhaps the most interesting story is that of 'Suntrap'. It is not widely known that it was founded by two women who were both from influential and wealthy families, the Barings and the Twinings. Muriel Ursula Brenton was the daughter of Thomas Baring MP of High Beech, Essex. The story goes that Muriel wanted a hospital so her banker brother Harold built her one near the Essex family home! This was the first 'Suntrap', a children's convalescent home. Muriel's colleague, Sister Katherine Twining (1857-1943), was a direct descendant of Thomas Twining, founder of the famous tea company. One of our outstanding pioneer nurses, Katherine embarked on her second nursing career, as a co-founder of St Andrew's Home for Crippled Children and lived on Hayling sea front from about 1913 until her death in 1943. St Andrew's Home had been founded in 1893 as a residence for unmarried mothers and their infants. At a Poor Law conference in 1907 one speaker said: There is no institution which I so much wish to see copied as the St Andrew's Home at Hayling Island. A girl of 15 whom we sent there with her child several years ago has now for a long time been earning £20 a year in the laundry of an institution and of course supporting her child and herself respectably. The home was put up for auction in 1913, together with its recreation ground. It was bought by Muriel Brenton and, in due course, reopened as 'St Andrew's Home for Crippled Children'. Shelters were erected to provide accommodation for the young patients. In 1923 a News reporter visited and

reported that a third fundraising fête was to be held at Mengham. Although they hopped or were carried or wheeled down to the water's edge all the children could swim. Most of the cases are of paralysis and tubercular hips and spines; all the clothing, splints and dressings are made at the home. Not a farthing is wasted. A bonny Portsmouth girl known as 'Jellyfish' was admitted in 1917 in a hopeless paralytic state but she has made such strides towards recovery that she is now champion swimmer of the school. The home remained under Sister Twining's control until 1930 when she retired. Mrs Brenton then gave the freehold property to the committee of the Tottenham Education Authority on condition that it was used for the benefit of the sick. It was renamed The Suntrap Residential Open Air School. In 1938 the open air huts were replaced by brick buildings but in 1943 the property was taken over by the Royal Marines and called HMS Suntrap. In 1947 it opened as a school for delicate children. I understand that in the early 1970s Suntrap had a superb headmistress, catering by then for children with assorted problems. There was also a special unit within the school grounds for several boys who were all autistic.

It was designed by AE Stallard, a well-known local architect, and built by Mr Lander. The Round 85 House was built in memory of Helen Penelope Longcroft, who died suddenly of pneumonia in 1925, aged 32. At the opening ceremony, in March 1928, Sir John Davenport MP described Miss Longcroft as having devoted many years of self-sacrificing service to the cause of alleviating the sufferings of the crippled children at St Andrew's Home. Miss Dempster, who nursed at Suntrap, told me that she resided in the Round House from 1957 to 1982 but ate her main meals in the school. Suntrap finally closed in 1988 but former pupils regularly hold a local reunion. The plaque to Miss Longcroft is now set into the wall of the modern flats on the site.
