The pensioner in his 80's, you must be talking about James.

That's the guy - what a great chap. I once ran with James as Tail End Charlie and jokingly asked "So where are your mates today James?". His reply: "Well they only run three days a week and I like to get out for four" :D

Besides, it's not called Solar any more - it's been re-branded as the East of England Co-op, but it's at the Great Eastern Square shopping centre - opposite Felixstowe Railway Station.
