As we celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a story from a local jubilee celebration.
In 1937, Sam Mann delivered a speech at the Golden Jubilee Dinner of David Mann & Sons.
Reminiscing on the changes experienced in Cranleigh during the 50 years since his father, David Mann, opened the store, Sam shared a fascinating insight into village life at that time.
Listen for tales of pigeon milk, developing the High Street, and why some customers had to enter the store sideways.
Thank you to Jeff Wood and Richard Womack for providing the archive material. The speech was narrated by Martin Bamford and produced by Bear Content.
