Leigh Wieland-Boys asks…Does anyone remember the nightclub under the Cafe Continental in Bexhill?

Charlie Ball… I remember Shunters ? Used to go to Shunters at Bexhill, also the queens Head king offa way, and another just round the corner ?

Leigh Wieland-Boys… I don’t remember that name Mr B – I worked at the Continental in the restaurant early 70s whilst at college. Only remember the nightclub at the Con, can’t remember what it was called but it was very popular & always crowded at the weekends.

Yvonne Cleland… Yes, I used to go to that club! It was ok, as it happens!

Gaynor Duke… The club was called the Continental, the Cont by locals , it opened in the early 60s.

Charlie Ball… The York, Leigh, you must remember that one ?

Leigh Wieland-Boys… May & Headley Storkey ran it with their sons Brian & Ronnie(?) – they also owned The Bexhill Club across the road.

Bob Shoesmith… Shunters was in Terminus Rd (it’s an auction house now I think) – pretty sleazy!
