I remember Shukers very well around 1977 I was friends with John Merrett who's dad Bob had Cossington Farm down Bell Lane. If I stayed over on a weekend we always used to go to Shukers Shop for a "Penneth" of sweets and Mr Merrett would buy his rolling tobacco. I remember the bird but thought it was a Mynah bird ????

Shukers farm cafe

Not sure which area it  comes under, Shukers farm/cafe, in the late sixties Shukers cafe was the place to visit when on motor cycles, just along from motorway bridge Walderslade, it was then a running farm and cafe, but now it is derelict, has been for many years.  If any one remembers old man Shuker  he had a parrot that would take sweets out of a glass jar and then give to the customer ...some killjoy  reported this to the health authority and "polly" was banned.  I pass the buildings a lot, and it now is a total wreck.  Is there any family I wonder?...  any knowledge?
