Memories of Woolston, Holes Lane Corner c1955
Mr Mather used to let us have a look at the penny tray ! we would walk down to his shop and take ages to choose something for 1d he was so good as he can't have made much profit from our three things. I remember his mother was a counsellor and used to give us a day off school always announced on speech day every year. He had a son called Charles I think.
Living on Barnfield Road, I was 10 years old in 1955 and would often be asked to ride my bike round to the Post Office to post a letter or buy something at the shop.The P.O. was run for many years by Mr Arthur Mather.
