  1. So pleased to hear the Council have stepped in to halt the removal of my family’s name from the shop in Roman Road. I do hope they can have it and the balustrades replaced.

  2. My grandfather, Leo Widdop, managed the Linthorpe Road Shop in the 1930’s, maybe earlier, until he retired. I used to visit and loved to see the coffee grinders, butter slicers and sides of bacon on display. He was a grand gentleman, and on half day closing he and my grandmother, Florence used to take me to the pictures.

  3. Fond memories of the original shop in the 1960’s.It still retained its original interior with wooden floors,brass handrails and various aromas- particularly the coffee.
    It was sad to see it transformed into a an unoriginal and bland supermarket.
