Jones Family
Mum is sat in the centre and she married my father John Edward Holland and had my sister Josephine, brother Graham and myself Philip. Mum ran the Post Office and Dad was local Postman and also did part-time decorating and building work. Originally the Telephone Exchange was part of the PO and Mum also sold groceries, ice cream, sweets, cigarettes etc. While dad had a large garden and kept pigs and chickens etc. So we were never short of food.
