When Apples were apples

Wasn’t life so much simpler when Apples were apples!

And do look at the brilliant list of store closures below by the late great Ronnie Barker.

And finally…It is with great sadness that I have to mention the loss of a few local businesses.
A local Bra Shop has gone bust.
A Mining Company has gone under.
A manufacturer of food blenders has gone into liquidation.
A Dog Kennels has had to call in the retrievers.
An origami book company has folded.
An Aerial Installation company has called in the receivers.
A Key Company has gone into lockdown.
A Watchsmith has wound down and called time.
An Iceland store has had its assets frozen.
A Shoe Factory has been soled and employees given the boot.
The Heinz factory has been canned as they couldn’t ketchup with orders.
The tarmac company has reached the end of the road.
The bread company has run out of dough.
The laundrette has been taken to the cleaners.
And finally the AA Recovery Service are on their way to a breakdown.
That’s all from me and…….
Ronald William George Barker, OBE
