Did you grow up in the 1950s? Did you go to school where reading was taught using Janet and John, where milk was served at break? Do you remember Tin Toys with friction wheels, the Matchbox Coronation Coach, the tin bath in front of the fire, the chimney sweep, and the man from the Pru? Yes? Then in the company of Janet Bracegirdle and her book ‘Memories’, this will be a trip down memory lane. A host of stories from her own early years in the village of Shawforth. Sweet dreams of yesteryear. Memories about village life and what life was like in the small Lancashire village. The book describes the characters who lived in Shawforth, good down-to-earth village folk who helped mould Shawforth into the community that it was.
