A blast from the past

3rd Jul 2020

As first post-lockdown excursions go, it doesn’t sound like the most exciting day out – yet for 89yr old German-born Mrs Barr it wasn’t just a trip to Lane End Conference Centre, it was a trip down memory lane. For she had last set foot on the site in 1953 – having lived and worked at Wycombe Court Girl’s School (as it was then) for 2 years preparing food and washing up in their kitchens, and preparing and clearing tables in the dining room. She worked 7am to 2pm and 5pm to 8pm every day with two half days per week.  As she drove through the village itself she recognised many of the houses and the old hotel, now flats, on the corner of Church Road leading to the venue.
