Tony Cook

Those who used to buy their groceries from the shop on the corner of Jubilee Close (now 65 High Street) will be saddened to learn of the death, on 4th February, of Tony Cook who ran the shop for thirty years.

We have since received this email from Trevor Collins:

Hello Hampton Wick,
I didn’t know Tony, but a lady who I presume was his mother also ran the Greengrocers. Prior to that Mrs Cook ran a Sweetshop on the opposite of the High Street. During the 40’s & 50’s Mrs Cook used to make Ice lollies for the kids, she used paste jars to make them in, also she made Icecream in her big Icecream making fridge & they were delicious. At Thorpe Park in the 90’s I had an Icecream & I said to my wife wow this tastes just like Mrs Cooks. The Cooks moved across the road to the Greengrocers Shop I think in the late 50’s or early 60’s.
My name is Trevor Collins I lived in Hampton Wick from 1940 to 1966 when I moved to the Isle of Wight, but I have happy memories of HW.
Best regards
Trevor C.
