I was born and brought up at Harborough Hall and vividly remember the war years there when a group of villagers came to make jam in the laundry after we children had been berry and fruit picking, and the Knitting Committee which met in the sunroom to make blanket squares and socks, hats and gloves for the troops.
If any of the people who came to The Pavilion as evacuees read this I would love to hear from them. I remember Georgie, Jean and Topsy very well and their matron who wore a lovely white veil. They taught me singing games and we often played together. I was known as Judy.
