109 Church Street




In the early twentieth century this was a Confectionary run by a Mrs Ada Lea and subsequently by H. Savage. After the war it was a general corner grocery store in the hands of V. Wheeler. I think his name was Vic Wheeler. His daughter Vicky was about my age I think. I don't recall ever going into this shop or having any reason to do so. It does not appear to have strayed too far from its original purpose after a century.

I went to school with David Wheeler and went in the shop from time to time. Wheeler sold seeds.
