The Wiltshire's - a Memory of Wroughton.

Me and our Jane knights was born at 20 Brimble Hill to Bob and Doreen Wiltshire. We then moved into Weir Side Ave with nan and Gramp, Frank and Dolly Wiltshire when our mother left. Have memories from before she left but the happiest are from when we moved in with nan and Gramp. I am the eldest of us 8 grandchildren, who are Karen (Bamford) Taylor, Martin and Stuart Wiltshire, Stephen and Nicky Harris and Tracey (Harris) Brain. I used to have to go to the Co-op every Thursday to do some shopping, and I can remember Nans co op number! Fridays I had to go to Swindon to do the rest of the shopping. Preddys used to deliver bread and on a Saturday we would have lovely loaf and I was lucky to have the knobby end, smothered in butter with marmite, just the best. Lots of memories, just too many to put here. Great memories of my time in Wroughton, I still think of it as my home, even though nan, Gramp and dad have now left.
