  1. I used to deliver groceries for Walter Wilson's in mid 60s, and it was self service then.
  2. Carillion: Watershed Moment For Privatisation?

    This highlights the weakness and short sighted-ness of government policy. to say nowt of costing us more versus direct labour. Yet another of Thatchers many legacies that have come to bite us on the bum. As for the directors, I notice that one Phillip Green is involved, and that Carrillion's pension fund is in deficit. Coincidence?

  5. The Tumby Life

    Hi Merc, John Shelley was older than me, he was in my sisters class. The John? Wilson I knew lived at Bebside, left school from 4nc at age 15. We used to hang about together.
  6. The Tumby Life

    Yes Merc/Steve, it was me that had the A35, sadly due to arthritus I couldn't maintain it as I would like, so I sold it. However I have bought a 1965 Vespa, sound crazy but riding and maintaining that is ok. Did you have a relative called John (I think) that went to Westridge, 1962 on? If so I was in his class.
  7. The Tumby Life

    Hi MercuryG, sounds great, as you may remember from previous posts, I live in that neck of the woods. Well, about 30 minutes from there. Your doggies look well behaved. I love donkeys and goats, got no room for them at our pace though. We pass Tumby, well, the turning to Tumby, when we take a trip out to Skeg or Horncastle. It is a nice part of Lincs, enjoy.

  9. Market Place Club - Early Warning Siren?

    Moe 19, I remember going into the 'ford COOP with my Grandma. The smells of the "store" are still in my memory. I also was fascinated by the wire transmission equipment. Could the "thing" on the roof, be a bell tower? For what use I have no idea whatsover.

  14. I remember a guy called Tommy Darling (No3?) who ran a shop down at Grange Park back in the '60s, can't for the life of me remember what he dealt in, just that he was a nice guy. He was a friend of my fathers.
