Stratford on Avon

Another coöp weekend in Stratford on Avon, although with time off to look at King Edward VI School and the guild chapel.  
Posted by Picasa

The pictures show the guild chapel and almshouses which are very pleasant and olde worlde, and Falstaff who represents comedy on the Shakespeare memorial in a fairly earthily comic pose. Still not convinced that the William Shakespeare of Stratford upon Avon (who is undoubtedly real was the person who wrote the plays, but not convinced it was Francis Bacon or Christopher Marlowe either. Stratford on Avon is nice enough without this USP. Now it has a coöp store it is all the better.

I have to say i was shocked when i stumbled accros your website with the amount of co-op store images you have. Especially as two of them I have been manager in, and one was taken when I was managing that store at that time of the photo. I like looking at the photos so i can see what differnt stores are like. I look forward to seeing pictures of all the other big co-op superstores in the future.
