My big sister Anne singing " She'll be Coming Round the Mountain " while she pushed me on the swing.

Summer afternoons going over Fairlie Moor, all of us packed into my Grandad's big car.

Howie's rolls still warm from the oven.

I caught up with this topic while on holiday, and was surprised that it hadn't run longer. There are surely those of us of a certain age group who could revive lots of memories.

I'll start off my contribution with 5015 ("fifty-fifteen") - the family's Co-op dividend number. It's unforgettable.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

My mum’s (never my dads for some reason) coop number is my bank pin - it’s tattooed inside my brain and I’ll NEVER forget it. The only other person that knew it was Norma and she’s no longer with us so I know it’s secure :lol:

It would be interested to see who has the earliest Co-op number, our Ardrossan one was 558. :puter

Despite our Dad being a butcher, our regular Saturday order at the Co-op van was
" A pound of mince, a pound of stew, nine one double two (9122)".
In my 70s now and it's never forgotten!

For the benefit of younger members and guests, can somebody explain how the Co-op dividend worked.

Of course many of you will remember the (embassy coupons catalogue) the prizes looked good and i remember quite a few people saving up for ages ..only to find out the cigarette coupons went missing. You could sell them everywhere :smt030
