10. Muriel & Bill Moore. Photo: George Dellar/Canon EOS/Fuji 200
Muriel (Deer) and Bill live over the well-known tobacconists and confectionery shop in the Broadway. Muriel's father, Ted, took over the shop in 1930 and on his retirement in 1969 Muriel and her mother ran the business until she too retired. Bill, born in Tipperary, served in the RAF at Wyton as Traffic Controller. He met Muriel over a cup of tea when she visited Wyton on Sports Day, and they married in 1951. Together they still run the shop but have now stopped the paper round. In September they will be celebrating the shop's 70th year in the family.
