This is the front window of a house that was a shop when first we moved to the village, in 1994. It was my closest newsagent and a quick and easy walk for the daily paper, but it closed before 2000, I think and the nearest newsagent was then another 100m to walk – no sweat. But that closed in around 2002, I think, when the proprietor retired and the next newsagent's was the Co op.
We still have three shops that sell newspapers in the village, but now I read the paper on my iPad, which requires less money and no walking; perhaps it would be an idea to make myself do the walk, now that I have time, and stay healthy . . .
