Best thing since sliced bread

Residents at our Holy Cross nursing home have been doing some serious number crunching with a fond look back at food prices in the ‘good old days’ compared to today.

Stepping back into the 1960’s for a sneak peek at the cost of some household staples then and now, they were shocked how much things had gone up.

For example, a pint of milk rose from the equivalent of 4p in 1965 to today’s price of 90p and a loaf of bread from 6.5p to £1.30.

“None of us could believe the difference in prices,” said Frances.  “Mind you, none of us could believe 1965 was 58 years ago either!”

Time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it.
