Burrows Newsagents, formerly of 54 Tivoli Street
Avril Fellowes, who now lives in America, has kindly sent us these memories of Burrows Newsagents.
"My grandparents Wallace and Agnes Burrows ran the newsagents at 54 Tivoli Street for many years and then after retirement my Uncle Harold Burrows ran it.
I have several pictures through the years of the changes brought about to 54. This is one of my Dad standing in front of 54 Tivoli Street when he was about 12 . He was born in 1900 in Park Place. "
"I have lived in the US for many years but, when I visit, I stay at 54 with my Aunt. Friends sent me this web site so I will be visiting often, I am passing it on to one of my daughters who came to England with me a couple years ago as she is very interested in all things English. I was at 54 last Oct/Nov and watched the Tivoli rise up.
My other grandparents Alfred and Amelia Matthews ran the Little Crown Inn, it is now or was last time I looked a Veterinary Clinic. (Macdonalds Vets.) My grandparents ran the Sudeley Arms in Winchcombe before moving to the Little Crown Inn. My sister was born there. My grandparents later retired and moved to the Old Bath Road. Here is a picture of my grandmother , my mother and uncle
outside the "pub".
The girl on the left is my Mother I believe the other girl is her friend Ivy. They were in the Girl Guides together. St James group of guides. My sister and I in later years belonged to the same troop. I still have some of my girl guide patches. Seem to remember I was in the Heather patrol.
