Written by Joyce Evelyn Grint niece to Leonard and Granddaughter to Phoebe
So lovely to see my uncle Leonard's shop and my Nanny's drapery shop at the side and the photos of Nanny and Leonard.
I am Joyce Evelyn Grint born 1924, 25th April. My father was Alfred Grint who was born on 7th June 1901 and my mother was Maud Emily Dickerson. I had one younger brother, Brian Alfred. My grandfather was George Grint, a loveable rascal, and my grandmother was Pheobe, who had four sisters, one of whom was called Carrie. Those sisters looked after my Grandmother well.
I remember my Uncle Leonard's shop well. We would visit on Sunday morning with my cousins Donald and Vivienne, Nanny gave us a poke of sweets each in the shop,and then we'd go through to the back where we'd play the organ. Then at tea time we devoured Uncle Leonard's ham joint for the shop! Leonard didn't live there. He lived in Earlham with Joyce his teacher wife and two children. I used to go with Grandad George to buy fresh crab and shrimps. Nanny Grints Drapers shop was on the other corner.
- Best wishes Joyce.
