A very welcome brightener on this very dull day.

For the information of ex-pats, Wilko is where the former Pendleburys was, that part of Standishgate is traffic free, apart from a few delivery vehicles having access.
Well done Jane for a festive season shot.

Just remembered buying my first LBD at Pendlebury's. It must have been in 1960, just after I got my SRN and was feeling (relatively) rich because I was no longer a Student Nurse!! I wore the dress to many celebrations over a few years. It felt sooo grown up and sophisticated.(what was I thinking???)

Jean F,
Please check your spelling. No offence taken.
