Our little community
These ladies are our friends & customers; Enid, who always keeps her rollers in!
Mrs Fazackalee, who is a widow who likes to have her parrot, The Admiral, with her at all times, and Mrs Tiplady, who is the president of Mrs T's WI group.
This is our good friend Norman. He has a lovely friendship with Enid. Norman is a very handy chap to know during a war. He manages to supply most people with whatever he can come across!
The two people on the left of this photograph are our local theatricals, Bertram Valentine & Miss Rosalind Hathaway. Miss Hathaway is a lot more demure than Bertram Valentine. Bertram Valentine is loud and doesn't seem to mind who knows his business!
Our errand boy Sidney is very knowledgeable about bicycles and has a bicycle repair service, which he runs from his backyard. Sidney is a splendid member of staff & is very good at holding back customers when we have chocolate on the counter.
Sidney's mother, Shirley often pops into the shop. Her husband is away in the navy. When she pops into my shop she leans over the counter & winks at me. Sometimes she gets behind my counter to try to help me. If I'm perfectly honest with you, I find her quite scary.
