Our good friend Sharon Boothroyd has written a poem to share with us all. We have all seen shops on the high street change over the years, but one still remains the same. Read on and you will find out!
How quickly shops change with time!
No personal service, all modern lines
We can get anything, anywhere
Shop till we drop, without a care
The old greengrocer's got fancy cheese
I prefer my cheddar – half a pound please
The cobbler's is a cheap pound store
No shoes fixed, yet bargains galore!
The baker's morphed into a deli
Posh nosh bites to fill your belly
The ironmonger's sells shiny handbags
With lots of designer high price tags
The barber's became a takeaway
A hot spicy meal, night or day
The tailor's turned into a bright nail bar
There's a big space too to park your car
The butcher sold to a charity
A very worthy cause, you see
Another local shut – haberdashery
No more ribbons and buttons for me
Yet there's one left still standing here
Always brings such warmth and cheer
Friday night, a tea- time treat
Fish and chips, it can't be beat!
