Costessey Shopping Memories

At last Monday's session Lynn bought in various reminiscence items relating to shopping. The group talked about memories of shops in the Costessey area. The men talked about the haircuts they got from Mr Skipper, David's father, boys comics and broken biscuits. The ladies remembered the blue bags and starch which they often bought and used for many different purposes - including bee stings! 

There was much discussion around Green Shield Stamps and the Co-op dividend-something even the youngest members could recall.
