Nuxley Rod Garage

A Memory of Belvedere

Hi all. I worked at Nuxley Road Garage from 1972 to 1984, owned by Keith Braddon. It seemed to be the hub of the village with all local shop keepers using the garage.
A good friend of the garage was Brian who owned Jaques the Hairdressers, another was Frank Hadlow a local builder and J Ashton who was involved in football.
I spent many good years in and around the village and have lovely memories, I still use the hairdressers today, now owned by Tony who was Brian's trainee.
I believe Frank Hadlow married Mr Dale's daughter, Mr Dale was the early owner of the garage. Love to hear more memories of the village. Doug Kitley
