Visiting the Old School
We Met over a Meal
The ones who arranged the visit gave us the opportunity to sit and chat over a buffet meal. It was brilliant. The canteen is now in what was the old Assembly Hall, where we had PE lessons (Physical Exercise). The ropes had been removed and the wall bars but much of it was just the same as it used to be when we were schoolgirls there. The main photo shows the Assembly Hall, set out for our buffet meal.
The photo shows part of what was available. Glamorgan sausage (vegetarian) is the golden cylinder at the top, with an egg roll on its left. In front of those is Bara Brith and Welsh Cake, neither of which I had tasted for nearly 50 years - I had a few extra of those! There is also a goat's Cheese and Red Onion tartlet, a salmon vol au vent and brie cheese with crackers and grapes.
The picture shows an alcove that was originally used as a sick bay. Some of my friends said they used to throw things down at any girls lying sick in there!
