History note, from August

On 16th August 1953, the Old Peoples Welfare Committee (today known as Brunelcare) purchased 11 Eaton Crescent in Clifton, Bristol. The house provided serviced accommodation for up to 18 people and was named ‘Dulverton House’, opened by Mervyn Rees, a trustee of the Dulverton Fund.
