Winns Store Reunion

Employees from the Winns store in Fairfield share their memories of the area, customers, co-workers and the environment they worked in.

Florence Callicott: Ware Street was sealed down the centre.

See one of the reasons why I didn't come to Winns till November was it should have, if I remember rightly, it should have been finished in May, but they struck trouble with the foundations because there's an underground spring in that area there and they were always having trouble. And later, like, I went from there to the council, later they had trouble building Ware Street to the standard it is today because they struck trouble with underground water there as well, in Ware Street. And they found an old fashioned sapling drain when they were excavating to do Ware Street there.
