Because I was a "trainee Dispensing Optician" and thus Rayner were paying for my college tuition, I earned the princely sum of 4000GBP annually. I was also supposed to be under the eagle eye of a qualified DO, but the manager was never there so I had to do most of the dispensing myself.

I did like St Helens, the people were lovely, if blunt

OMG I remember Rayner's. I didn't go there because my friend Elaine was an optician in Warrington, so I used to go to her. She has her own shop in North lakes, north of Brisbane now!

I was actually delighted to leave St Helens in 1992 dnd move to Burton-on-Trent. I've always thought of St Helens as being a dump and preferred going shopping in Warrington or Bolton!

Click on ‘UNSUBSCRIBE’ located at the bottom and top left hand side of this page. That should sort it.
