Reg Powell had his business on the site of what is today (2019) the car wash business. According to Rose Robinson (see record 2155) Reg Powell was a wonderful man. He has been a Haulier, Builder, Welder and was almost a Smithy, repairing tractors, trailers, laying concrete, but since retired. So if you needed something or some job doing see Reg Powell. He was a Jack of all Trades. He did the Merry Bells car park. Mr Powell, his wife, son and daughter lived up the lane at the side of his workshed in a flat roofed bungalow. After this, it became David Axford car maintenance business.

In the 1980s, there was a Car Mart business here.
