Remember  a few of these shops, the Fish shop around this time was run by a rather tall well built fellow, he still wrapped the Fish & Chips the old fashioned way using newspaper (possibly before that practice became illegal), plus as I recall there was a shop in the parade run by two elderly ladies which sold Bread & Cakes (among other things) think it may have been directly or indirectly connected with Hadleigh Bakery as they did not possess baking facilities on this premises, Gerry's was in another shop in the parade that sold paraffin and other useful bits and bobs (possibly tools). When the parade was demolished he moved into one of the shops in the newly constructed Jones Parade of shops near Denham Road & expanded it into a form of ironmongers which he ran along with his wife for a few years.
