1963

 

Eastbourne's oldest model shop has an undocumented past and we would love to be able to cobble together a complete picture of its history.  We're pretty certain that it was originally opened in 1963 by Mr Ken Morton - who was famous for wearing his pork pie hat and playing cricket for the town.  We know that it changed hands a couple of times before Trevor Hendrick took over the shop in 1994 and that he ran it for 19 years until he unfortunately passed away in 2013.  Since 2014 sebastian has run the shop with the help of Jim, Derek, and IzzI.

 

We would love to hear about your memories of the shop and see any pictures that you might have of it - especially from the early years.  If you could help us piece together the shop's unique history please contact us via the web-form available HERE or come in for a cup of tea and a chat.
