Grandfather - a Memory of Witney.

The man walking his dog across the road is my grandfather Arthur William Haggitt and his faithful companion Carlo, he was never without his dog. His sister Gladys Hicks ran The Butcher's Arms in Corn Street and I have fond memories of times spent in Witney. I always remember as a child having McVities digestive biscuit's from his biscuit tin, and I swore that they tasted completely different and much better eaten from my Grampy's tin. I still have his biscuit tin to this day and yes I still keep the digestive's in it and they really do taste much better!
