Tinned Apricot Scandal

From Historical Hastings

The tinned apricot scandal involved the purchase of tinned apricots by the School Meals Organiser. Following letters published in the local paper, an Education Committee meeting discussed the matter and the Chairman of the School Meals Sub-committee expounded his views on the matter in the 21s November 1953 edition of the Hastings & St Leonards Observer. A further meeting of full council held on the 8th of December 1953.[1]
