There was a bakery in Surrey, located across the road from the Grunnings main offices. On 1 November, 1981, Vernon Dursley visited this bakery for a doughnut, after a long morning of unusual events and yelling at other people at work. Just outside the bakery there was a discussion among several people in long cloaks who mentioned the names "Harry" and "Potter". As Harry Potter was Dursley's nephew by marriage, this was the causation of some disturbance for him.[1]
