Jim Breeds… Who remembers these shops? Christmas Fayre in Kings Road, St. Leonards in 1967. From my cousin’s copy of the 16th December 1967 Hastings & St. Leonards Observer.

Janie Lowe… I worked in Dewhurst the Butchers . kings road was very Christmasy. In those days.

Mick O’Dowd… Kings Road used to be the place to go every Christmas. It had every shop you could want. Lights & music and atmosphere. My Dad used to work in the sorting office at the bottom at Christmas and we would go & see him. Aaah the power of nostalgia & memories.

Wendy Weaver… The Traders used to pay for the Christmas decorations in the street.

John Busbridge… Used to buy clothes in Cyril Savages, also always went shopping there at Christmas, remember the lights and the music

John Wilde… 1967 was a fab time for a 16yr old to be living above Dads coffee bar “The Happening” 8 Kings Rd. Some of my fondest memories.

Tony Court-holmes… ye gods The Happening had forgot that. What was the one the bottom of London Road called?
