I MUST thank Mr Aldous for bringing back fond memories of March Woolies.

I worked at that tea-bar when it first opened, there were three of us, and later two more girls joined us.

I remember fetching milk from Harradine's dairy by the churn, on a sack barrow. All bread had to be sliced by hand.

My husband-to-be was also a fireman on the railway.
