Works Canteen...

You had to pay for any teas/coffees/snacks or dinners you wanted in the canteen. I rarely had a hot meal as it was cheaper to bring sandwiches from home, although I do remember that I enjoyed eating the goulash when it was on the menu!

I vaguely recall that tea break was done in shifts, and that you barely had time to queue for your tea, pay for it and sit down before teabreak was over.

At the back of the canteen was the shop where you could purchase rejects for a small sum; 1p for a nail polish for example.

The canteen manager was Connie Lister.

Peggy the tea-lady used to go around the offices with teas and coffees mid-morning and (possibly) mid-afternoon.
