But not as Ron's, obviously. The planning documentation in the window says it will be a shop + cafe, owned by the woman who runs the cafe in needlemakers.
What would you have sold there, other than turnips?

I miss Ron's and Ron himself.
There's not many places in this part of town that you can by essentials from, I think only Beckworths sells things that you can make a meal from up here, so another place will be welcome.
Also miss the veg shop.

I used to pass most of those places on my way to the original Pells school. The store at the top of the steps was Powells bakers who sold lovely cakes. The pet shop was Conrad Dowdings before he moved to the Cliffe. Wycherleys newsagents and Large the greengrocer. Can't remember the butchers though..............

Ron had a stroke a couple of years back and, after quite a good recovery, is living with his daughter.

I remember the butchers - where the shop with hard hats in the window is now. Can't remember what it was called though.
