Having grown up in one of the above, it's amazing how they have all gone. I wonder how they would manage today, with the rules and regulations. Imagine a shop assistant cutting fresh local ham, which was not vacuum packed, on a machiene and manually weighing it, or unwrapped bread being handed across the counter. Imagine locally produced butter being sold without a use by date or preservatives. Can you imagine your local super store allowing you to run up a bill until the childrens allowance arrived. Would the staff at the same store interupt Christmas dinners to help out when a customer ran out of milk on Christmas Day. Imagine a ten year old minding a shop, without a thought of vandalism or theft. Imagine the community spirit there was when neighbours used the shop as a gathering place and drop in support service. Nostalgia ain't what it used to be!
