We used to go into a sweet shop in the High Street and buy Wagon Wheels. I am sure they were bigger then than they are now! One of the children whose parents owned the sweet shop had a snake! We were fascinated. Snakes as pets were quite rare in those days. Diana Dors used to live in Billingshurst, and we often used to see her in the Post Office, wearing a fur coat. She would emerge from a huge white car! My mother would say "Good Morning Miss Dors", but never ever got a reply from her! I wonder if the girl who had the snake still lives in Billingshurst? She would be in her 60s now.
