Response to 'Welcome to Bay St'

Many people have good memories of their first bike.

Reader Helen says: 'Do you know that there was always a bike shop opposite the Town Hall - the Malvern Star bike shop. This is where my father bought my first bike. I was in Grade 6 at Graham Street Primary School and the plan was that I would cycle to Middle Park Central School for years 7 and 8 prior to going to MacRob. I was so proud riding that bike home on my own after picking it up - it was red. I used to cycle to Middle Park right down Richardson Street, keeping the Carmelite Church as my guide'.

One resident, now in his seventies, is still riding the bike he got when he was eleven every day! Here is a portrait of that venerable bike.
