The soup dragon in Market Harborough

News of plans to remake The Clangers reminds me of a time, nearly 30 years ago, when I was working at Golden Wonder in Market Harborough.

The company was part of the same group (Imperial Foods) as HP Foods and Symington's, who made, amongst other things, packet soups.

The staff shop for all three firms was housed at Symington's, and the woman who ran it was rather fierce.

So if  at Golden Wonder we were going over to the staff shop at lunchtime we used to say: "I'm going to see the soup dragon."
