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 ‘Can we fix it? Yes we can!’ Sidmouth Repair Cafe seeks new team members
- 2 ‘Act now’ to get flood-prone school relocated, councillor urges Government
- 3 Property of the Week: Fortfield Terrace, Sidmouth
- 4 Book your tickets for wine tasting in Sidmouth
- 5 Sidmouth's 'fantastic' new amphitheatre 'an asset to the town'
- 6 Thousands of washed up fish provide easy pickings for fishermen and gulls
- 7 Immigration suspect arrested after fire in empty Sidmouth shop
- 8 New £14m Sidmouth Beach Management Plan takes major step forward
- 9 Vision Group awards recognise 'champions' who helped Sidmouth pull through lockdown
- 10 Former Sidmouth student campaigns to save Afghan friends from Taliban regime
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!
