The Village - a Memory of Mead Vale.
I grew up in the village; I was born in May 1950 and my parents ran The Old Oak pub, Jack & Eve. I remember we used to get an old coach which stopped under the old tree by the bus stop selling fish n' chips , it was a big coach. I remember a man on a bike coming round selling bread from his basket. There used to be a garage on the corner run by Mr Long and I remember his son was called Peter, one day he was in the garden of the pub with me and he fell into the big water tank and nearly drowned. They were very good and happy old days, and it's been great seeing old pictures.
