Bill Nash added (January 2018): "... In 1958 I lived in the house shown as the Post Office.. also known as Hazeldene. I was four at the time... !!!! We were there for about 6 months. They were at that time installing the sewer along South Road - or so I believe, what I remember quite clearly is spending my days watching the men, and joining them for their lunch and breaks My mother told me I insisted in taking cold milky tea in an old medicine bottle and a jam sandwich out to the trench so I could join the men for lunch! What would Health & Safety say about that today!!! Heals builders yard was opposite - they were then both builders and funeral directors! (Ernie Heal buried my Grandfather)".
