A Memory of Blandford Forum

In the 1960s we used Blandford as our main shopping town, we lived in Child Okeford six miles away.
Hobbs were a good toy shop, Frisbys shoe shop, Cherrys outfitters were another must when shoppinG for clothes, indeed both Frisbys and Cherrys used to bring their vans round the villages every other week.
We used to catch a Hants and Dorset bus from Steepleton Corner to visit one of the two Cinemas, and after the show there was a great Fish & Chip shop next door to one of them.
Thursday was the best day to visit, it was market day and the town square was full of stalls, you could also visit Boots lending library to cHange your books.
