Does anyone remember the shop I think called 'Rays' next to the infant school? It sold everything and anything!

Hello Tracey I remember the shop in question and have a feeling you are correct in saying that it was called 'Rays' as you say it sold all sorts of goods. As a child I would go there to do my Christmas shopping for Grandparents,Aunts,Uncles and cousins.

My Mum used to work in Rays in the 1970's. She may well have served you. Ray was a strange man. My Dad got his stepson a job in the city and he still works up there. Ray died quite a while ago I believe.

I used to work in Ray's on Saturdays around 1970/71 with Ray and his wife and yes, it stocked just about everything!
