I also remember the sweet shop next to the school. It was run by Mrs Hester. I also went to Holmesdale School in the 1960s. My Aunt pat and Uncle Mick ran the prince of Wales in the 70s and 80s.

I was at Holmesdale in the 60s. I think I remember Ken Turrell who I believe had a brother called Wayne who lived off Nutley lane. Mrs Hester sold 'Potato Puffs' which I've not seen to this day. My Dodd had a wooden leg and as stated by David Gale sold tasteless home made orange lollies and drinks. Not sure he had much else in that very dark shop....
