Dawn Leaney… A big part of the village years ago. I can remember the smell of new shoes as you went in. I saved up as a teenager to buy a pair of cream high patent shoes with a big button on the side that l had seen in the window. Loved those shoes.

Audrey Huggins… Loved that shop

Judy Atkinson… I remember getting shoes there, especially summer sandals (the ones with the cut-out design), we only lived a few doors along. A proper shoe shop with that special smell

Wendy Bevis… School shoes xx

Mick O’Dowd… Remember it well. Cornelius fruit shop next door. Now Hastings Pet Shop and Winchesters.
