Blue Lagoon Battlesbridge - a Memory of Wickford.

The Blue Lagoon at Battlesbridge was a very small nightclub. I worked there on a Saturday evening as a waiter in the restaurant. The other waiter was Bernie Wright, and we were both students at Southend Catering College. The kitchen was run by one of the lecturers at the College whose name I forget. I remember that Keith Skues from Radio Luxembourg was a gust DJ one night.The nightclub was situated on what is now a ststic caravan park, which was in my youth the Mayphil Swimming pool. It is close to the Hawk public House
I believe the owner was a man called Tuck.
