He was one of the Kennedys that owned the shop. Have saved the advert and will have to show him...

Anyone got anymore?
It appears that Kennedys moved from Vicar Lane to Call Lane, this is from 1975.

Can you check on that McDodge with your Dad

Kennedys did in fact move from Vicar Lane to The Calls where they traded until the early 1980s.

If you have anything else to ask, let me know. And if you have any adverts, photos or anything lying around it would mean the world to my dad to see!

Unfortunately I don't have any memorabilia but I do have a memory.

I bought from Kennedy's a packet of tiny tablets, for want of a better word, that you dropped on to the lighted end of a cigarette and they filled the air with floaty, fluffy particles.

What I forgot was that my Dad had just painted all the woodwork in the living room. :(

Sent to bed.
There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.
