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.

Heath's Stores, corner of Nicol Road & Lovel Road - I remember the son, John Heath, he went to school in High Wycombe as I did. He was a year below me, and if I remember he had a younger brother whose name I cannot recall.
Just up Nicol Road, past Heath's Stores, on the right-hand side, was a small engineering workshop long since demolished and turned into housing. It employed half-a-dozen people in its time, George House from Hillside Close, once worked there.

Anyone remember someone called Michael Ferguson who lived along the service road where Tesco's is and where John's Cafe used to be?

Didn't the people who ran John's Cafe have a shop opposite Baileys in The Phygtle, Chalfont Common before they opened the cafe?

Clarke the coal merchant had his yard next to the alley way in Field Way, going down to the Playing Fields, where he kept his coal and lorry. The yard was eventually sold and a house was built on it. On the other side of the alley way was an older house which I believe belonged to (Tommy?) Bowler who was a useful winger who played for Chalfont St Peter FC in the days when big Jack Stone was in goal.
Mr Clarke had a very attractive daughter called Josephine if I recall!

Are you have the name correct Michael Farquason or something similar rings a bell. But this would be in the sixties hope my mind isn't playing tricks.

You're right Dot, it wasn't Ferguson but more like Farquason. As I recall he lived with his mother, a nice woman. I don't really know why I remember him as I didn't actually know him.

I'm talking about the 1950's, it was a sweet shop cum haberdashery sort of shop. I can't remember the surname but if someone mentions it it'll ring a bell with me. I remember the lady there made square ice lollies out of blackcurrant Ribena and once you had a few sucks you were left with a block of ice! It was where my mother bought me chocolate at the end of sweet rationing in 1953.

Anyone recall a guy called Pete St Ledger? Brian Mead? Gordon Entwistle?

I've heard the names, but i don't remember the faces. 
Brian Mead, was he the brother to Billy?
