MORE memories of Park Parade shopping centre in Leigh Park came from David Cross.
David said I failed to mention that in later years Park Parade was either called ‘Parkers’ or just ‘The Parade.’
Colin Shepherd says that, although I mentioned many of the shops, I missed out on Good & Son jewellers and Freeman, Hardy & Willis – known all over the UK for shoes.
Then there were three different bakers – Westons (later Wilkins), Campions and Smith & Vosper.
For television hire there was Radio Rentals/Rentaset, plus Tylers the wine merchant and Mr Ford the shoe repairer.
We must not forget the well-established public house The Greyhound. This was before the extra ‘bit’ at Greywell was added on in 1966.
