Photo-a-Day (Friday, 18th January, 2008)
Lovely photo this was my mum & dads watering hole in the early 50's. They lived at Mere Oaks for a while then moved to Pepper Lane Standish. Arthur & Dorothy Hayes were their names.
Nice to see the Boars Head, brings back fond memories.
Was Mere Oaks close to Boars Head pub Jo?
used to work there for a while late 80's, early 90's.
Fond Memories remmeber having to duck as you went in
Your right Margaret!Happy days also on the Bowling green.The beer was ok also.
When I used the Boars Head in the 70s the beer was, I think, Almonds. The brewery was in Standish near the traffic lights.
Dave I lived there when I was 18mnths old I believe it was nearby.I think it may have turned into Mere Oaks special school cheers Jo
