Goodworths, Worcester Park - a Memory of Worcester Park.
My grandfather (who I never met) Clarence Bartels lived with his wife Grace and two sons Adrian and Roland in Kingshill Avenue. My father (Adrian) tells me his father worked in a shop called Goodworths in Worcester Park in the 1940s to 1960s, he died in 1961. I don't know much of his past, and wondered if any local residents from that era remember the shop, what it sold (think it was a grocers) and maybe even Clarence himself. I have been researching the Bartels family history recently.
