Christmas Day in the Bakehouse My memories of Christmas, during the post-war years, have dimmed with time. Yet I can recall when the festive season really was a family occasion. My parents owned the Yorkshire Bakery in Herne Bay High Street. Above the shop was our living accommodation and behind the property stood the bakehouse. Spacious and warm, with a large coke oven in which to cook all the food and a hefty china sink to do all the washing-up, the bakehouse became the perfect place to entertain all the family – over 30 of us at times – to a Christmas Day dinner. Once the bakers had left on Christmas Eve the place was scrubbed clean. Decorations, mainly paper chains we made ourselves, were hung round the walls. Grandparents, parents, cousins, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and my sister and brothers sat down to a magnificent spread, laid out on tables covered in white cloths and placed down the centre of the bakehouse. The problem of accommodating the babies (there was a baby boom after 1945!) was solved by laying them on sheets in the dough-bowl. Even our cat Whisky, whose main task was to keep the mice down, was treated to turkey, goose and chicken! I remember the adults drinking port and sherry and smoking cigars, while the kids had home-made lemonade. Apart from some of my father’s relations, who travelled down from Reigate, getting to our place was not a problem as most of our family in those days lived locally. Party games were held in the evening, when we all crowded into the main living room above the shop. No television – but we did have a gramophone! A programme of events – the one shown here was for 1952 – was tapped out on an old typewriter. Then it was back to the bakehouse for supper. Christmas Day in the bakehouse was definitely a magical time Roger Turner
