AlanB 13 Posted August 6, 2019 Report Share Posted August 6, 2019 I don't know if anyone saw this recently https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-49149461 I remember when that site was the Park and Ride site for the failed Zone and Collar system to keep cars out of the city centre. The so-called "Lilac Leopard" coaches often had just one passenger on them! Later on it was Main Stop, then the Co op and then Waitrose. My Mum lived round the corner until she went into a care home last year, and my brother and I sold her house just before Christmas so hopefully we benefitted from the Waitrose effect. The lady pictured near the beginning of the article, Daphne Simpson, used to run the newsagent opposite the doctor's surgery with her husband in the 1970s. Later on she became a good friend of my Mum and they used to get together with other ladies to do craft activities and play Scrabble. She must be well into her 90s by now and is still looking good. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
