We can all talk about the `old days' in our home town, wherever we live, but it is even better to write it down and pay lasting homage to the characters, shops and way of life that have made us all what we are today. Growing up during the 1950s and 60s in the small town of Alcester in Warwickshire, Maggie Payne believes it is vital to remember your roots and the people and places that are all part of life's rich tapestry. Looking back with a wry smile, Maggie recounts tales from her childhood that are unique to Alcester - the ancient tradition of Flitch trial for newly-weds, the annual `Mop' Fair and the infamous Spemall Duck Races; to more universal recollections that everyone can relate to.
