Lunch At The Pavilion - a Memory of Leicester.

I was at Wyggy Boys School from 1961 to 68. Usually I went home for dinner (which we always had mid-day) as my father worked nearby and took me. But if he wasn't going home I used to meet my mother or grandmother and have lunch in the pavilion, Usually it was egg and chips for 1s.6d. and a Lyons fruit pie for 6d. No drink because it was too extravagent to buy drinks in a cafe! Sometimes I went round the Vicky Park greenhouses with my grandma before going back to school.
I also used to pass the pavilion on cross-country practice runs round Vicky Park.
