I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw that photo of the shops in Whitehawk Avenue, it bought back so many memories. My sister and I, we were Pat & Chris Marshall, lived at 80 Whitehawk Avenue opposite the shops. We lived with our Grandparents, Peter & Vicky Turrel. We lived next door to the Bradfords & Mrs Marriot. We lived there from 1954 until 1958. I went to Whitehawk senior shcool for my last 2 years till i was 15, then worked at Harrimonds dressmaking factory at Bevendean for a year, then we moved to Somerset where I am now. But I loved it in Whitehawk, we were always outside playing up and down the racehill, down to the Level along the seafront. I remember June Chapman, David Cage, Micheal Hussey, Didcotts.

I would like a pound for every time I was sent round to these shops by dear old mum, especially Novis the Chemist. I remember that the sweetshop was the only place you could make a phone call ( before the days when everyone had a phone ).'Sulleys' where most goods were packed up for you. Sugar in little blue bags. Personal service was the order of the day.

5 woodbines for a shilling.....great deal, mind you it should have been spent on a school dinner! Circa 1965.

Mr. Novis seemed to know about every illness there was and was always willing to give advice. i was chased home from school one day and fell over there hitting my face on the little brick wall. Mrs Church worked there then and she picked me up and took me home, she was a lovely lady.
