Mothers Day Lunch

Over 50 mothers and grandmothers joined us for our mother’s day lunch on Wednesday 14th. The weather was glorious, the hall looked beautiful with candles and daffodils and everyone had a special time together.  Oliver’s grandmother told us that the last time she’d eaten at St John’s was in 1942, when she was on special duty here for a week due to staff shortage at the school. She remembered meals of boiled rice with a small serving of cheese and half an apple, suet pudding with leeks and a few flecks of fat bacon! Claire, our cook, has higher standards and worked a miracle in the kitchen feeding so many a meal of roast pork followed by apple pie and custard, and all in so short a time.
