Fully restored - our bread and cake supply was again secured

Sadly, after Eric passed away, the shop was no longer profitable and was eventually converted to a private residence. The Post Office and Pillar-box moved to Country Fayre, the other store in High Road. Country Fayre also started baking fresh bread, a very welcome innovation.
