Formerly Howards Dairies

Santander closed one of its branches

Seen on the north side of Hadleigh High Street, in 2014. Now that Santander’s signage had been removed, the lettering of former occupants of the site had left its traces and could just be made out: ‘HOWARDS DAIRIES’. Do you know of any other occupants?

  • I was Trainee Manager for Unigate in 1964 and was sent to do my training with Howard’s Dairies, one of their subsidiaries. I trained on milk rounds in Rayleigh then in The Dairy in Leigh on Sea or Westcliffe. Memory gone. Wonderful time.

  • Howard’s Dairies was in Oak Road South Hadleigh. It was the general stores for all of the shops of which there was over twenty. Plus a sausage factory, and an egg candling factory. Mr Fillery was the general manager for the Oak Road complex and all of the shops. I worked there as Mr Fillery’s secretary and receptionist from 1951-54.

  • I used to drive lorries for Howards Dairies and delivered to this shop many times. The premises that is now Choices in Rectory Road was a Supermarket that Howards opened to replace the one above.

  • Alas, it was not seen today. That was actually two months ago, 19th November 2014 when I first composed the article. Is there a picture anywhere that shows how it used to look? Or better still when it was Howards Dairies?
