My parents (Anita and Bill) owned and ran Lewis' tobacco and confectionery on the corner of Percy Rd and Pickford Lane, opposite the co-op between the 60s and 70s. We used to employ a woman called Dot who used to help serve customers with my mum. I remember in the mid 60's my father saved the owner of Cameron grocer's life by resuscitating him after he'd had a heart attack. We used to shovel the snow and ice off the pavements in front of the bus stop to stop people form falling. There was a woman who lived upstairs from Web's TV repair who was very beautiful but sadly died in her 40s of cancer - only a few years after we had moved there. There was a very nice pub across the way, can't remember the name. So many memories it's hard to pen them all down. Will need to update this later.
