THERE was a time when people from Woking went to Chertsey to do their shopping, evidently as it offered a better selection of shops.

This fact was noted in a supplement the Woking News & Mail published in 1954 to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary. The 20-page booklet, which looked to the past and the future, makes fascinating reading 63 years on.
