Sidney Froude

Sidney Froude lived in Fairycroft Road adjacent to the Branch, he started work with Waitrose in 1929 being employed by Mr Waite himself.

The pictures of the Branch being built on this site were provided by Mr Froude’s family after his death.

Sid was one of our first customer’s on opening day and shopped most days, he was a lovely man and was always very interested in how the Company was performing.

He was well known for predicting the ‘Bonus’ and was often correct.

These pictures and write ups are from the local press.

I was delighted when approached by Mr Froude’s family in January 1997 to be able to help with a surprise 90th birthday party for Sid in our dining room.
