Transcript:

Where we lived on Merrymead Drive most of the houses were built in that area but you just went say about a mile and there was just road ways without houses, buildings. Also there were no shops to get your food and everything. But there was a lorry or cars used to come round with food and we used to go inside and just pick your food out and that’s how we had to get our shopping at first or get the bus into town, into the old town it was then because there was no town centre. There was just roads laid out for the town centre but there were no town centre shops at all and we just got the bus to the Old Town and on the Saturday there was a market, we used to go there quite often.
