"Memories Of A Village Grocer" by John Barkle.
At Cheddar Village Hall. Tea/coffee and biscuits available from 2.00pm, talk starts at 2.30pm.
For 60 years John lived and worked in the grocery business. For 25 years he and his wife had village post offices and general stores, then from 1972 to 1996 they had two convenience stores in Wells.
His talk covers memories from wartime rationing right up to modern day shopping. The fun was in the old days with memories of village characters and village life.
