Old Times - a Memory of Tilehurst.
My name is Simon, born in Francis Street in Reading, moved to 30 School Road at 1 year old. My dad ran the shop at number 30 School Road next to the Methodist church, Petry Stores. I was just wondering if anybody has any memories of it as I remember it always being busy, my dad cooking hams in the back room and carving them, and boxes of broken biscuits that came from Huntly and Palmers.
I went to the Laurels and then on to Park Lane School.
