Somerset is a great place for fruit growing but does anyone remember strawberry picking as an organised variation on sports day activities? I'm talking 1958, and it seemed like a good idea at the time. It must have been the supplementing of income which was the attraction but I've no idea by how much or where we were taken to do this new back-breaking occupation.
I imagine the growers had only to ring the camp and guarantee to get a few unsuspecting lads!
