    I'm not sure that cushions is what Littleworth really needs.
    But I don't think the Co-op sells them.

    I always think Littleworth is another town nearby, but I'm sure it's a suburb of Stafford where exactly is it!?

    And there's one just outside Hednesford - but that one's not got a cushion shop or a Metropolitan Bar and Prince of Wales.

    Littleworth's where the Tixall Road leaves, or joins, the Weston Road.

    I've always thought there's little worth in Hednesford.

    That's a bit of dodgy map given where it puts BEACONSIDE.

    Yes, Thatcher's to blame for the colliery closures.

    At least they have a Tesco where the customer services team understand that that means serving the customer and being polite. Unlike the shower in Stafford.

    Littleworth? Didn’t she run the cabin in Corrie?

    No, that was Arthur Scargill. To my eternal shame I voted for him in the NUM election.
    Don't know how he got in TBH. found very few ex work colleagues that admitted to voting for him once the pits were closed.

    I'm forever indebted to Scargill and the rioters at Strangeways for providing a never-ending supply of overtime for my dad when I was growing up...

    M&S in Hanley is scheduled to shut permanently in August.


    I suppose that this may, perversely, have a slightly beneficial effect on the Stafford shop.

    I think most people in that neck of the woods use the very big M&S at Wolstanton.
    It’s easier to park there too than at Hanley.
