Who remembers school milk?

Pete Prescott… During the winter of 63 it was so cold the milk froze and as it expanded out lifted the foil lid off of the bottle. They became like milk Ice lollies ! When it was summer I hated it as it became warm and tasted off to me.

Matt Thomas… Got a malted biscuit as well at Elphinstone Infants

Chris Meachen… Loved it in the winter, would eat the frozen bit as ice cream, but didn’t like it warm in the summer. When I got to senior school they kept it in a chiller until break time, then I couldn’t get enough of the stuff..

Julie Findlay-jones… Hated it I always struggled to drink it all and was always told off.

Mark Praid… Great with a Mint or Orange Yoyo Choc biscuit at 11.am if your hanging around the sand pit.😉 Avoid at all costs the few remaining milks at four o clock – when the sun has shined through the classroom window on them all day.

Dennis Torrance… I remember at school they tried to give it to us frozen should have supplied sticks as well

Doc Racer… Maggie Thatcher milk snatcher

Linda Day… Gross couldn’t stand it not a lover of milk even now put me off for life lol

Lloyd Johnson… 1/3 of a pint bottles…

Neal Hunter… it was always warm because they put it on the radiator

Lyn Humphrey… Used to enjoy getting the 1/3 pint around 11am–sometimes 2 bottles if class numbers were down. One lad once had EIGHT bottles during a flu epidemic……..then he was sick as a dog.

Dave Nattress… Hi Lyn, and who was that boy, I’m sure it wasn’t you and nor was it me!
