Ran­dall’s is not serv­ing any more

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR LETTERS - Ayl­sham Ick­en­ham Ad­dress

IT WAS with great sad­ness that I read of Ran­dall’s, whose 1891 de­but pre­dated Liver­pool FC’s birth and not soon after many of the orig­i­nal foot­ball league’s team in­cep­tions! [‘Doors set to close for the fi­nal time’, Gazette, De­cem­ber 17].

This grand Uxbridge icon in Vine Street strikes a chord with me, as, grow­ing up in Southall, I well re­mem­ber another won­der­ful depart­ment store, Daniels, which was in Uxbridge Road, West Eal­ing, and I spent many an af­ter­noon there.

I’m pretty sure the writ­ers of Are You Be­ing Served may have paid a visit to Ran­dall’s, maybe to find some in­spi­ra­tion for their clas­sic TV sit­com. Maybe there was an equiv­a­lent ‘Mr Humphries’ or ‘Mrs Slo­combe’ in Uxbridge or nearby?

I won­der what the pro­posed MP-in-wait­ing for Uxbridge and South Ruis­lip has to pon­der about Ran­dall’s fate? Come on Boris, let’s hear you. MARK BRYCE

Drive charges have no ac­tual ba­sis in law and can be suc­cess­fully chal­lenged.

PPA has been set up to fa­cil­i­tate the chal­lenges, at a rea­son­able cost to the con­sumer.

We’d be grate­ful if you could let your read­ers know. DAVID CAR­ROD
