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.
The counters were the high sort, good if you were tall,
But much too high for all my friends -
- 1 Delays on Sidmouth road for Devon County Show
- 2 Man in court accused of torching Ottery woman's car
- 3 Help clean up Sidmouth as In Bloom judges' visit approaches
- 4 Play abour real life leaves audience filled with feel good laughter
- 5 Folk Festival gears up to bring Sidmouth to life with music
- 6 Otter Valley councillor welcomes inquiry into sewage discharges into rivers
- 7 Part of Donkey Sanctuary closed due to respiratory infection
- 8 Injured pedestrian helped by lifeboat and lifeguard teams
- 9 Circus proposed for Sidmouth next year
- 10 Church flower festival flourishes again after two 'lost' years
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!
