Terry Cook took the meeting today. He focussed on a book by Marguerite Patten called You are What you eat. This dealt with the sorts of food and the quantities of food through rationing that we were eating during the Second World War. This included such details as the allowance of 1 egg allowed a week or even a fortnight. Formal Government advice on the most productive way to manage your allotment. The group reminisced about hay boxes and laughed about the recipe for mock oyster soup made of fish trimmings and remembered the rabbit ration card.
Terry asked for an expression of interest from the group about arranging a guided trip to discover haunted Maldon.
