That's sad news. He did keep business going in Warsop for a long time.

He helped provide a great deal of employment for local people especially at the VG with Mrs Raine as the Manager and all the women that were employed there as well as Mr Humphries on the Bacon Counter and Bill Taylor and Bill Wright as delivery drivers.

The VG before the days of the hypermarkest was always a bustling place

In the 1970s we used to do our weekly shop there on a Friday

He always came across as very much a gentleman always happy to speak to customers
