Staff stalwarts Jimmy Dougal and Peter Waddell are pictured above posing for their picture besides the travelling grocery shop outside the long established shop ‘Wisharts’. Peter for a time ran a branch of Wisharts in Reston and made many friends there. The photograph was taken by Robbie Nisbet of Eyemouth who also drove a grocery van for nearly 50 years.

We know that the picture was taken on the day that the shop closed, but we’re not sure when this was.

If you have any information on Wisharts, Jimmy or Peter, do let us know.
