Dateline 1979 - Maggie Thatcher Visits Barum

Mrs Thatcher visiting Shappies
Mrs Thatcher visited Shappies in 1979 and it turns out she later put in a large order for 3000 doors. I suppose when compared to the doors she could have had a better finish but on these sort of occasions, meeting the hairy common man, she was just as wooden! I still remember that day well. I'd been playing table tennis in the leisure centre and was having a can of corona dandelion and burdock in the cafeteria when we were all bundled out by way of the back stairs by plain clothes coppers as her entourage swept into the indoor bowling green. Oh it did cause great excitement in the town. I couldn't abide the woman meself.
