Yvonne Cleland…  6 old pennies. Bag of chips from Western Road chippie. Heaven.

Pauline Richards… Local chip shop at hughenden rd. Used to give us a free bag of crackling. And the chip shop in old town on corner of high st.nr st.Clements church used to sell spam fritters. It’s a jewellery shop now.

Eugene Hughes… I so remember Vince (Vincenzo) giving me crackling. A real nice guy. Unless he was chasing us up the road for bad behavior. Is the Chinese chap still there. He bought it from Vince and they stayed in touch!

Pauline Richards… I had forgotten his name but can still remember his face

Peter Thomson… Always a tanner of chips as kids. When teenagers, there was a chippy round the back of the cricket ground used to do beano burgers. Burger and beans pressed between two slices of bread, dipped in batter and fried. Fartypops!

Keith Blizard… Fish and Chips outer wrapping being newspaper. My local chippie was in Whitefriars Road

Andy Pilkington… Good old Beano Burger,chippy in station rd

Allyson Breeds… Sod the chips. A bag of scraps for 2p.

Lloyd Johnson… I must be old everyone else is talking about a tanners worth of chips. My mates & I would get four pennies worth of chips from the fish and chip shop in Ore Village after Youth Club which was almost next door. This photo is wonderful just like us lot after club but we were a little more stylish with bumfreezer Jackets and winklepickers…

Eugene Hughes… Fish and chips always tasted better out of a newspaper.

Noel Garland… Peter andrucettis chipper in santry after playing football in the Plots now known as Ellenenfield Park washed down with a Pepsi if you had the money.

Jan Warren… The “Viking” chip shop, on the corner of London Road/Little Common Road, Bexhill, when there was little old Belle Hill going up to the Old Town and still a railway bridge going over, and a coal-yard behind the café, and opposite the York …… the jewellers, “VIVO” the tiny supermarket, the greengrocers (Jack), the Butchers ………….. Ohhhh, there’s so many little shops that used to be in London Road, Bexhill – now all gone, unless you lived in Bexhill in the 60s/70s ……. remember??, I remember!!

Dave Nattress… Various memories. The chip shop at the traffic lights Belle Hill/London Road, Bexhill – now gone, 4d for chips a shilling for a fish, invariably cod. Taffys of course, many name checks for Taffys on SMART and Beano Burgers from Western Road, St Leonards – think it was Western Road, off Norman Road, near Warrior Square. Taffys was always open very late – well into the early hours in fact Fridays and Saturdays.

David Edwards… When I was a kid my local chip shop was in The High Street where Roberts Rummidge is now and it was a Saturday thing and free crackling.

Rod Soundman… Tasted better out of newspaper wrapping!

Alan Pepper… Jones’s in Battle Road in the 60’s tasted so good while watching World of Sport with Dickie Davies !
