That's quite a strange web site! Arthur Pewty was a character in Monty Python who went to see the marriage guidance councillor with his wife Dierdre for those that don't know. It looks like a mix of one person's memories and recycled local news!

The article could do with some proper paragraphing. Good picture of the famous Silica shop. Silica usually had multi-page, full colour adverts in almost every ST and Amiga magazine.
Still got, still working: Atari 4Mb STe, 520STFM, 2.5Mb STF.
