The Newsagents on the corner was my Fathers Shop from 1947/8 until it was demolished. His name was Clifford Wrigglesworth and if anyone knew us at this time please get in touch

Hi John I remember your Father well. My parents, Arthur and Eileen Moss, ran The Punch Bowl Hotel further up Town Street from 1957 to 1968 and this was our local sweet shop as kids. We used to call it 'Cliffords'. We used to be always in there buying this and that and on Sunday afternoons my Mother used to send me for a quarter of Quality Street as a special treat for her and I to share. I also remember a dark haired lady working in the shop but I cannot recall her name. Happy Days! What a lovely photograph this is. It brought back so many memories.
