Mine is Lewes Golf Club Pro Shop - I rarely play anymore, but the shop gives me fond memories.

Mine is now the Post Office, I've just been in there for some travel cash and the two ladies I dealt with Lynne and Giorgia were just fantastic, really helpful and lovely people.

I have always been treated well in the Post office and always with a smile. Barclays yesterday, an assistant was very helpful and when I said so, she beamed all over. Matt Woodruff also very pleasant.

St Annes Pharmacy. The staff in there are so kind, cheerful and helpful, they make you feel better before you've taken the tablets. The pharmacist gives excellent advice too.

Wenban-Smith.
A timber yard can be a bit intimidating for a non-master-carpenter.
The staff have been fantastic, really helpful in guiding us through
what we need to build stud walls. fencing panels, (home made) etc.
They are friendly, and completely non-judgemental, to non-professionals, like us, and I thoroughly recommend them.

I have to admit that the 2 times I've been in Closet and Botts I've wanted to have a shower afterwards. Everything seems so grubby. But perhaps that's the point.

And I'm bored with 'bored of'. It's bored with. I put bored of in the same box as 'How are you? - I'm good, yeh'. 'Can I get a coffee?'

@Clifford - Yes, the "I'm good thanks" really annoys me, but everyone seems to be doing it now so I've learned to bite my tongue. However, what's even more annoying is the way lots of people now begin their sentences with 'So'. It spread like a virus around three years ago. Very odd.

Screwfix. The staff are always welcoming and eager to serve- and always offer a coffee while waiting. Plus there is the facility to check stock online before visiting.

Tell me, does anyone ever use Beckworths the deli? I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, but it always looks very tired and empty.

So, Earl of Lewes, how true. 'So' at the beginning of every answer given on radio interviews has indeed spread like a virus. It has actually begun to replace 'basically'!
