Audrey Groom and Deanna Groom's picture
I love this collection particularly the images of the old garage, because it has just been demolished and I wondered what it looked like when it was operating. Also the images of the bakery and the two boys with the union jack on their bycles outside the Barclays Bank. The range of shops and services that the village had, once upon a time, has changed greatly. Great collection.
