Hi

Hi June

So you didn't have to walk up to Hawleys on a Sunday night for a loaf then after Miles's shop had shut. Or did you go down the road to Crezwells. I was speaking to a grandaughter of the Crezwells on another forum. She didn't know her grandfather that well and I told her a few things about him and the shop.

Hi Phil

I don't remember Crezwells, they must have been down the road by Marshall Street or were they on the corner of Larches Street and Ladypool Road used to get sweets from there on the way to school, we used to go to Wildens next to the Talbot

Hi June

Creswells (I think thats the right spelling) were on the corner of Marshall St, opposite the outdoor. I remember Wilden's next to the Talbot. I remember the daughter, can't think of her name I think she was a little older than me.

Do you remember Fred's café on the corner of Kyrwicks Lane. I don't suppose you ever went in there. But old Fred Dawkins was a character. It broke his heart when they closed his café. Another piece of land they did nothing with for about 20 years. They could have left him there it would have done no harm. Fred's was a service to the community all those dinners he used to dish out on the slate until Friday. I'm sure some of his old customers died of malnutrition after he went.

Hi June

Yes I remember icky's the chip shop in Kyrwicks Lane, I don't think I remember the previous people. We tended to use the chippy in Woodfield Rd as we thought they were better chips and there was more choice.

I remember the mens hairdresser just up the road. I remember that David or Ted used to have to drag Ben and me to have our hair cut. We always wanted to go to the stylist on Highgate rd but he charged 6d more.

Hi Phil

I remember Cliff he lived next door to the Stuarts who had twin boys Charles & ? younger than us and two daughters Pamela and Jennifer do you remember them they would be older than us.

I don't recall Cliff leaving to live in Long Street, but there were terraces in that street.

Hi Colin Iv'e just had a thought. That bakers you asked about, I didn't know it but I know some time ago there was a firm called Baines could it have been one of those. SB


Do not take life too seriously - you are not going to get out of it alive anyway.

Colin

A few doors down from C H Browns was Bragg's Bakers, but next door but one to Browns was a little bakery shop owned by Miss Minne Hannam, could that be the one. It might have had a different name over the door, but she was the owner.
