Hi, I am researching my fathers family tree and in 1939 it shows their address as being The Old Shop, Kington. The names are Arthur John Deakins, Martha Jane Deakins (my grandparents) and Thomas George Deakins (my father who would have been 13 yrs old then). If anyone has any old photographs of the Old Shop around that time or indeed any other information I'd be very grateful. Regards, Dawn (nee Deakins)

i started at lady hawkins when it first opened in 1962, every thing smelt new and looked bright and shiny. it was like going into a huge new adventure with apprehension and butterflies in my tummy. i soon settled in and made some really good friends. i spent three happy years there and left in 1965. although i left kington in the late 1970,s i still return for regular visits and bump into many old school friends. kington and lady hawkins will always hold special memories for me.
