About 30 people gathered in Victoria Park on Saturday for a special dedication ceremony. 

Just past the bridge off the main path now sits The Middlemore British Home Children bench and an oak tree behind it as a reminder and dedication to British Home Children and their descendants. The bench was ordered through the town’s parks recreation and recreation department. Monique Chiasson – Truro Daily News

    Lovely story. My grandpa and his brother were taken by Middlemore Homes in 1896. His brother stayed and my grandpa returned to Birmingham in 1901. It's good to know they haven't been forgotten.
