Holidays With Grandparents - a Memory of Wincobank.
My first memory of Wincobank is having a holiday with grandparents in Vauxhall Road. I was only 12 at the time and it was an awful lot to take in after having been brought up in Kent. I clearly remember the turkeys wandering around freely across the road and the pigeons being kept at the top of the bank opposite the family home. The school at the top of the road is where my father and his siblings received their basic education. I wonsder whether Tizer is still available at was the corner shop on Newman Road.
