2. Remember when McDonald's had its own security?

Has any other McDonalds' branch ever had their own bouncer? 😂

3. You always got your Fish and Chips from Bradshaws

Open since 1933, Bradshaws was the place to go for the best fish and chips in town.

With 55 years of cooking under his belt, 'master fryer' Charlie retired in May, we wish him good luck but where will we get our Friday night dinner now?

7. The A331 being built

Did anyone else ride their bike on it before it officially opened? From North Camp to the Aldershot turn off.

8. Going to Aldershot Town games with the family

You're a Shots fan through and through!

9. Going to Tongham for the stock car racing

Every Thursday night!
