Spin on Sugartown
Sugartown , a comedy drama (BBC pilot) is being filmed here until 20th February. I havent seen any luvvies myself, but understand that hearsay has it that the great Sue Johnston is in it.
We do hope-and here I am talking for myself, my spouse and our friend R hope that the viewing public will not associate Filey with run down 'tat shops'.
To me one of the delights of Filey has been the small shops which make the retail world a pleasure.
For the last 20 years we have shared our house in Queen Street with' holiday visitors'. They all remark on the shopping experience.
Greengrocers and Butchers have disappeared from many high streets. The centre of Beverley no longer has a greengrocer, and all the small shops are becoming multinational upmarket clothing stores. In Filey they love browsing the emerging Gallery Culture, our stalwart Stationers, Shoe shops, Chocolate shop as well as the great little food stores.
You really need to know your Filey Shops. I was looking for a small change purse and had done the rounds of the obvious. Someone said "have you been in the shop that used to be Pattisons?' . I hadnt been in there since it was a greengrocers. A recent change of owners has transformed the placeinside, and I got just what I wanted.
What do you think?
