While browsing the web in a search for information about her childhood, a Dutch woman came across the Brookmans Park Newsletter (now renamed the North Mymms Newsletter). One particular image caught her eye. It was of the Octagon Lodge at North Mymms House, her childhood home. Hendrien Ferkranus then set about organising a trip down memory lane with her mother to retrace her past and unearth some fond memories. This is her story.
