Memories of Norfolk
My mother-in-law, went to school with the actor John Mills, whose father was headmaster of the village school. In later years she helped to run a market garden with her husband in nearby Browston Green, and sold vegetables and fruit twice a week on Yarmouth market.
My father, Kenneth Sydney Mickleburgh used to cycle from Bungay to give piano lessons to pupils in Norton, perhaps some of them still live there.

At that time my parents were living in East London which even by then was still suffering from the results of the wartime bombing, and to visit Hopton was of course a breath of fresh air (in more ways than one). I can always remember the chalets which were brick built and rendered and after the sun had been on them all day were extremely hot at night. There was always lots to do for the children, with numerious competitions and sports and I can remember spending many hours on the small boating lake, sailing a small model yacht, having races with some of the other children. The food was always very good,and of the time was a very good place to have a holiday and all too soon was time to return home again.

Constitutional Holiday Camp
Was this camp called the 'Constitutional Holiday Camp'? If so I remember being sent there for a week's holiday by the British Legion Orphans Committee - it felt like I was going to the other end of the world from Cambridge. I had a great time even though I was very homesick for a few days. I remember having to queue up in the mornings with a very large enamelled jug to get hot water from a stand pipe tap! and the food ... well, the less said about that the better eh!
