Here we have a blast from the past - Woolworths!

The sadly missed store used to occupy the prime Southgate spot in Sleaford now owned by Yorkshire Trading Company.

The shop closed a few years ago when the recession hit the household name, forcing it to close its massive chain of stores which could be found in almost every market town in the country.

Back in 1967, the staff of the Sleaford store were at this time in lighter mood as they enjoyed their annual party, held on this occasion in the Nag’s Head.

Can you remember the staff in this photo, or were you among them at that time? What are your memories of the store from that period and did the parties continue?
