I must say Northdown Road has become my stomping ground in recent years. I am a member of Saint Pauls church and my wife is a more active member than me now due to my MS. I get my hair cut in Grades which is just off Northdown road. We buy Rolls from Deli-o-licious. I got a phone call from the Vicar of Saint Pauls last week moaning he had gone to Deli-o-licious for a crayfish roll and they had sold them all at 1:00 OCLOCK so the moral to that phone call is get there early or as my Grandson would say SNOOZE AND YOU LOOZE.He is fast when it comes to picking the best cakes at Grandma's. I was thinking this morning most of our shopping is done in Northdown Road. Tesco's is a frequent haunt of the wife. She gets diesel in the garage opposite and often uses the car wash there. Next door to the Garage is James Decor who are a one stop shop for those who cant stand the huge DIY stores. They have been there for years and know there onions when it comes to elbows and u bends and they stock a vast array of wood and nails screws and fixings, plus sand and cement for those repairs around the home. Further down Thornton Bobby the Electrical retailer has been in Cliftonville for over 100 years. A visit to their shop is always a joy, they recently installed a new Television aerial for us, and our daughter got them to adjust her satellite dish. On the other corner from Thorton Bobby is Creature Comforts pet and animal feeds. We get our bird seed and meal worms from them and when we had a cat we got wormers and flea treatment from them.I get my Hair cut at Grades hairdresser opposite. Car service can be undertaken at St Georges Garage the Volkswagens and Mercedes specialists they always have a selection of used cars and over the road from them is Grand Garage the Peugeot dealers. Cliftonville has a host of shops and is a destination worth visiting you will be glad you did.
I will add some piccies when the weather improves it is currently snowing and I am not going out until it warms up
