Ode to Woolies
Many, many years ago - in Woolies I did work, Miss Smart was the one in charge - from whom we did not shirk! Saturday jobs were all the norm - my friends and I agree.
Many, many years ago - in Woolies I did work,
Miss Smart was the one in charge - from whom we did not shirk!
Saturday jobs were all the norm - my friends and I agree.
The hourly rate was one and nine - with Bank Holidays times three.
You may also want to watch:
The counters were the high sort, good if you were tall,
But much too high for all my friends -
- 1 Hayman's Butchers 'had been my life' - Stewart Hayman
- 2 Town is spruced up as excitement is in the air for future
- 3 Sidmouth garden show to take place as lockdown eases
- 4 Salston Manor Hotel plans given the go-ahead
- 5 Claire leaves political spotlight
- 6 Sidmouth Ladies restart with a golf comp
- 7 Joma Devon and Exeter League Weekend Fixtures
- 8 Try tennis for FREE at Sidford Tennis Club
- 9 Local photographer captures the beauty of The Byes with his wildlife shots
- 10 Sidmouth in Bloom seating project full of civic pride
Most of them were small!
We all wanted to work on sweets, cosmetics or the toys,
No-one wanted to be on nails - they should have had the boys!
Our money went a long way - we spent it on pay day.
So Woolies - please don't go - we all want you to stay!
