"Mum started in Budgens 1971, that closed 1982 and Budgens moved down next to Post Office.

I can't be sure but I think this photo might be inside Budgens where the One stop shop is now. Budgens moved to there from the corner of Malyons Lane. Budgens originally used to be on the corner of Malyons Lane where the Co-Op is now before closing down in the very early 80s (probably around 1981).

"I used to work in Budgens with Andrew and a Sean Proudfoot. My job was stacking the biscuit aisle. The amount of broken packets of biscuits, amazing. I worked at the shop which was next to ours "Bijou", it meant that I didn't have to get up too early on a Saturday but also meant that if they were short I got asked to work after school.
