I thought the tile shop *was* the butchers? Aren't the cafe & flooring shop what used to be Rumbelows?
I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

Yes Floors of Distinction and the Cafe used to be Rumbelows, I remember watching the smash and grab in about 1992 when a car reversed straight through the doors and they grabbed all the video cameras. I think Andy Van Dyke was working there then. Before that it used to be the old cinema.
 
I saw Trevor Allum a couple of years ago when I was talking to Roy when he was in Lemmings. Roy would know all this he has been in the village now for 50 years.

I thought "Stones" was the fish-monger or one of the employee's was called Stone.

2 Butchers shops one was "Lanes" top of the market place. The other "Robertson" on the high street next to the church also had a slaughter house out the back Big%20smile

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.
