Sweet mem­o­ries

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

THE fea­ture about con­fec­tionery (Fe­bru­ary 1) trans­ported me back to my early school­days at a prep school called Crow Hall in Down­ham Mar­ket, Nor­folk. Ev­ery Mon­day, my sis­ter and I, along with about 12 other weekly board­ers, had to tip a small bag of trea­sured sweets into a large jar for every­one to share. My sis­ter al­ways had choco­late eclairs and I had Merry Maids, but, sadly, we didn’t al­ways man­age to eat our own choice when they were shared round af­ter sup­per. The jar was al­ways empty on a Mon­day morn­ing, so I can only think the head­mas­ter and his wife con­sumed the bal­ance when we’d all gone home for the week­end. Mary Rudd, by email
