I have a cook­book from my late mother, Au­drey Mang­nall.The recipe book was a fundrais­ing ef­fort of Field­ing Kinder­garten in 1964, when Margery Cobbe was chair­man.

Spon­sors had two, three or four digit phone num­bers then, and some were still on a ‘‘part­line’’, and in­clude Eades, Met­calfes, Man­dahl, Dewe Elec­tri­cal, Pen­heys, Pi­vacs, and many more.

Re­cur­ring names of recipe providers are Stod­dart, D. Ma­her, A Dermer, J Holly, R Steven­son, R Chis­nall, B. Heine­mann, N. Den­ham, B and MCobbe among oth­ers.

The book lost its cover years ago, and now dog-earred and has rusty sta­ples, but I still use it!
