A Family Business.

A Memory of Bosherston

I am the lady at the door with my husband Don Weston. The date is about 1959 because that is the year we had electricity in the village and started to sell ice cream. Hence the Walls sign. My parents Mr and Mrs Caesar Evans started the tearooms here in 1922 and after my mother died in 1952 my husband and I ran this little business together very happily for fifty two years until his sudden death three years ago. But I have managed to keep the business going with the help of many good friends. I am now nearly eighty five and affectionately known by many customers as Auntie Vi. We sold your postcards for many years.
