Starting work

Anne worked at Falgate’s shop on Staithe Road for a year when she left school, before going on to work at the chemist in Stalham for for about six years until she married.

With thanks 

to the Hickling Local History Group:

Heath Priory - just off Staithe Road - was owned by the Falgate family who moved there in 1946 and opened tea rooms.  They then built a shop - Heath Priory Stores, otherwise known as the Falgate Shop, up the road a bit.

In 1967, the Parry family bought Heath Priory and continued to run the shop until competition from a new shop at The Pleasure Boat  Inn forced its closure, losing for the village one of its more picturesque businesses..
