Life has taken a full
circle for the sandwich shop that has recently opened opposite the
medical centre on Church Drive. In the 1930s the shop
traded as a fish and chip shop and
was owned and ran
and Mrs Naylor who also owned the off-license directly opposite
the church at that time.
John Steele was a regular customer at that time and recalls "
Naylor operated the fish shop using two pans, coal fired,
naturally. A portion of fish was tuppence and chips a penny a portion". The
shop as also been a bookmakers, DIY, video rental, double glazing and
even a bed sit.
The shop has recently been refurbished and done a full turn
around by sisters Angela Round and Julie Wheatman (both nee Bannister).
Selling food again, the shop now offers a wide range of hot
and cold sandwiches plus savouries, tortilla wraps, jacket potatoes,
panini toasties and not forgetting
their daily special of a meat and two veg with yorkshire pudding dinner
