Harrison's Store - a Memory of Anderby Creek.

The store with the petrol pumps in this photograph was owned from at leat the early 1950s to the late 70's by a couple, originally from Leicester, called Bob and Grace Harrison. In the season, opening hours were around 6am to 11pm, and the store sold just about everything.

I can remember Grace Harrison. I used to go on holiday to Anderby Creek every year with my family, when I was young. We went for two weeks during Leicester fortnight and went there every year until I was sixteen, until 1981.

She was a lovely woman, I used to go for the newspapers and milk in the mornings. We was on the caravan site next to the chip shop and club ( I cannot remember the name).

There was an off licence/shop across the road and across from Grace's shop was Rose's shop and caravan park and at the end of the road, the post office and shop. I used to play on the beach for many hours, crabbing and shrimping.

I also used to fish both sides of the creek with my dad.

Some very happy memories of Anderby, I wish they could come back again.
