“The milk came around with a horse and cart and they used to stop just next door but one, up the road. And if I were able I was always the first to go and get a pail and a shovel! And I managed to save up for a fridge in 1957 and it was £70 which of course in those days was a lot of money. It was a Kelvinator, but it was a question of saving up and that was in those days a lot, fortunately they have come down from what they were then.”
