Malcolm Wheatley

Malcolm Wheatley was born in 1914 and has been a resident of the Fairfield since his father began working in the original Wheatleys store. He recalls many events from his and Fairfield's history here.

... everyone rode push bikes. The local bike shop was run by a chap by the name of Goodey. Goodey ran the races and supplied the prizes. The most popular show race and the best decorated bike. In other words the last person that arrived at the goal without putting his feet on the ground was the winner. The main street of The Crescent was closed off for three events with the band following us all the way along.
