Next Village Society Talk

The story of Matthew’s of Trinity Street 1832-1962
told by Judy Wilson

Haslingfield Village Hall, 8.00 pm, Tuesday 15th January, 2013

Many will remember Matthew & Son, the high-class grocery shop that was a feature of Trinity Street for 130 years until the early 1960s, trading in premises now occupied by Heffers Bookshop.   The talk will tell the story of this well regarded Cambridge grocer and wine merchant and of the family that ran it for three generations.

Judy Wilson is the second daughter of Bernard Matthew, the firm’s last Managing Director.  She has spent five years researching and writing the firm’s story.  It is not just family history but a fascinating piece of social history, portraying a past way of life that was led by Matthew’s customers, from both the University and the town.
