    What wonderful old pictures you’ve found Colin. I never knew that it was a bicycle shop, and Wally the dog ..

  2. Wisteria Cottage.The photo of Edith Walton and Rennee on the doorstep brings back memories. Rennee married Arthur Barratt from Greatworth and her sister Grace his brother Dennis. She was for many years secretary of Greatworth W.I.,when my mother was President. She died in her sleep many years ago at no great age. A lovely lady
