Dorking - early memories as a kid going there, bored out my mind...
Southampton - 2 or 3 times for D.C. - volunteered for cleaning duty. Huge platforms. Anyone remember the rush to grab the plants and flowers after the last day was over?
Portsmouth/Fratton football ground
Twickers - always had to walk miles (well it felt like it) from where we parked the car to the stadium
Hayesbridge - volunteered here a few times with gardening & maintenance. Remember one time when the sisters made shepherds pie for the volunteers. I did cleaning duty a few times, I just couldn't sit there and hear that garbage.
The last few times I went to Hayes I went by coach. We would meet in the Kingdom Hall parking lot and the coach would pick us up from there. Took about 2 hours to get to the assembly hall.
It seems you were never allowed to walk on the grass - only once did we ever have a picnic lunch on the grass
The simplified food arrangment went from hot meals, to biscuits, tea & coffee, to tea & coffee to finally NOTHING at Hayesbridge.
I remember how proud I was at being appointed an attendant, great excuse to walk around.
Went to Brighton a few times - not bad, you could buy donuts in the venue and go for a walk along the seafront, have a pint.
