I have not got this off Wikipedia,Does anybody remember the co-op bakery at Stechford or the co-op milk at Garrets Green and Vauxhall i worked at both the bread and milk depots great jobs in the day,don't know if they are still going. I wouldn't expect the bakery to still be going
I do remember the Coop Bakery at Stechford I also remember their little green vans which I think were called Morrison Electricar. Also The Coop Dairy this was round the corner from where I live. The Dairy is still there by the way but its not coop anymore, The Milk trucks I see deliver in the mornings say Milk and more.
Jack Hall was a great old guy, he was a Methodist Lay minister. He also used to pick up the odd lost school kid and take them into school. when he first came to our round in Sheldon it was a two man round with a big diesel l truck from Vauxhall dairy, when the Garretts Green dairy was built the round was split still into two large rounds. Not sure who you are though.
