The Creamery Shop - a Memory of Whitstable.

my grandparents owned the creamery shop (Margaret and Fred Hoare) just down from the water front. We used to go in summer to stay in the attic rooms above the shop.
It is now a sewing machine shop but the photo's give me very fond memories of the fishermen mending there nets the old way with a wooden hand held ??? was fascinating.
I live in the Blue Mountains in Australia and one of my best friends is married to a Whitstable man who is visiting UK now. If anyone knows Garth Wyver say hi from Von.
I am Yvonne Blake (ne Hoare)
