Leverington Camp - a Memory of Leverington.

I also worked for a couple of summers at the fruit picking camp and had a wonderful time meeting people from all over the world.
The camp was very basic with army beds and blankets in tin huts but we had such a good time. Picked all sorts of fruit but particularily enjoyed the big bramley apple trees, they were quite a challenge, and we had to pick every apple.
I remember the juke box in the hall playing now classic late 70 s tunes and being brought lunch in the orchard and a big tea urn. We were paid with tokens redeemed later. I remember Bob and Paul who supervised us in the orchards with good humour mostly! Also working in Smedleys sorting vegetables.
Yep, we retired of an evening to the Six Ringers, not too far to walk back thankfully.
So many good memories and I had a wonderful time.
