Erna talks about her work in catering

PR: So were your two main employers the Connaught and Whipps Cross? You say you were at Whipps Cross until you retired. How long were you at the Connaught?

ES: I was there for ten years.

PR: Ten years. And what were you doing there?

ES: I was in the catering. I used to do nights. I had to do nights.

PR: And what was the extent of the catering? Can you give me an idea of what a typical day might have been like there for you?

ES: You cook everything, all the pastries… And when the chef is ill, or so on, you know, you help. You help generally with the food and then I work in the dining room.

PR: So there was a team of you. How did you fit into that team?

ES: It was a shift team. You don’t work with the same people all the time. Everybody’s not on the same shift. And I mostly do nights.
