Cinemas Versus M & S

Posted on: October 30th, 2018 by Sue

On this Thursday, the Fletton United football ground was the venue for a match between ladies representing Peterborough Cinemas and Marks & Spencer. Admission fro adults was 6d and for children 3d. Profits were in aid of Mayor A.E. Fletcher’s Unemployment Fund. I wonder who won? (Bull, J. & V., Perry, S. and Sturges, R., Peterborough – a third portrait in old picture postcards, S.B.
