Goodbye, and thanks for all the bread

Horsham’s only independent baker closed at the end of November 2004.


“Blatch & Shepherd’s closing down,”
The notice in the shop said.
Sad news for shoppers in this town,
For this shop sells the top bread.

The news was passed along the queue;
When people on the step heard,
They all cried out, “What shall we do?
You can’t close Blatch & Shepherd!

“But if its end is really nigh,
There’s something must be said:
We’ll miss you, one and all. Goodbye,
And thanks for all the bread.”
