Petry Stores School Road, Tilehurst - a Memory of Tilehurst.

I was born in Westwood Road and my grandfather worked for Francis Bros which was located just around the corner from here. My mother also worked at Petry Stores when she was 18 until she got married. Her name was Eunice Arthurs at the time. I have many memories of playing football in the recreation ground opposite. I left Tilehurst in 1979 but still go back to visit my family who still live in the area.
