Strood Green Stores
Colin Giddings:Recalls a parade of shops in Strood Green after the war; Mr Colman a cobbler, Mrs Smith a gift/wool shop and Mr Westrope a grocer.
At some stage there were two shops. One the post office and
newsagent run by Mr Copley (in the 1980s/1990s) and his wife and
next door a delicatessen/greengrocer which closed probably in the
mid 1990s. The
Shop at Strood Green is now a community shop organised and financed by the community of Strood Green.
