Post Office changed hands in 1939/40 and was owned by Mr & Mrs Mather, similarly around the same period the Off License became to be owned by Mr & Mrs Brown. The Post Office was , in due course, owned by a Mr & Mrs Parsons whom I knew quite well, Mrs Parsons being the former Valerie Walker who lived on Fearnville Terrace. I remember being taken to Dr Tenpenny and being terrifed in the large old solemn looking house.
