Scope and content

There was an excellent kitchen at the school in Bowling Green Close but early in the 1980s it was closed and food brought over from Carterton. After a while, instead of uneaten food going into the pigswill bins, it had to be sent back to Carterton. It was a little suspicious that if peas left over and returned one day appeared to come back the following day in some new concoction. At that point, several children began taking sandwiches. When dinners stopped being meat and two veg and things like a burger in a bun, even more children stopped having a dinner because it was no longer a balance meal and not fit to be called a dinner.
In the pictures you can see Primrose Mansfield who became Mrs Primrose Seacole, Gale Bowles, Mavis Clack, Brenda Quick, Ruth Wheeler, Chris Connaughton and Jenny Scott nee Clack. The picture of 4 was taken either 1986 or 1987.
