Shops in the Village were plentiful when I was at Primary School.
The Post Office was run by Mr Barnes as far back as I remember, a photo of Mike and Cecily in 1971 above. Before coming to the village Mike was a former bank clerk in South Africa.
The sweet shop and News Agent on the corner of Bow Road, known as the General Stores (No 1 Bow Road) was run by Mrs Diane Outram in 1971 when this photo was taken. Before this it was run by Mr & Mrs Wiseman.
