  1. How things can change in a relative short time. In 1960 Timpson’s wanted to rebuildtheir shop. Planning permission was applied for but Collingwoods objected. Their objection was based on the fact that their safe was against the dividing wall and they felt that it would be vulnerable whilst the building work went on. Timpson’s plan was to demolish their shop and rebuild.
    I was working at Timpsons at that time and in anticipation of doing the work they opened two smaller branches in the town, one in the Victoria building and the other next door to the now defunct Odeon cinema.


  2. … and Van Allen, I remember waiting in our car parked on the central strip waiting to pick my Mum up from work there, funny the things you remember.
    A Hillman Minx (1971), a green Morris Marina (1972) (yes it was green I looked it up 🙂 ), with an Austin Maxi behind it, and a Ford Anglia (1966).
