Opposite The School - a Memory of Banstead.

Does anyone else remember the chain railings and posts, painted black and white around the green in front of these shops? I used to jump over them as a small child. They enclosed all the grass area.

Yes, I remember those chains from the early 70s - used to do the same, jumping over them.

The wool shop was called Maxines if I remember correctly - my mum used to take me in so she could buy wool - we had a knitting machine which fascinated me.

I have a fading memory, now it's been mentioned, of that sweet shop next to the wool shop. Very small and old fashioned, wasn't it?
