“First of all before we had any shops at hilltop we had our shops in a row of houses when they first started – post office and general provisions.  Otherwise you had to walk right down to Hatfield with a pram because you hadn’t got a bus service then, at first.  The co-op would always come round with milk and they had provisions.”
