King's Lynn Van Pelt pork butchers 60th anniversary, September 1995 – Lynn News Memory Lane





Van Pelt pork butchers, known to generations of regular customers for quality meats and value for money, celebrated its 60th anniversary in Lynn in September 1995.

The family business was situated in the same premises at 108 Norfolk Street for more than 40 years, having previously been at Pilot Street and London Road before that.

2001: Guides and Rangers helped with a big tidy-up in the churchyard at Terrington St Clement. The Rev Robert Slipper said the work was greatly appreciated because, as it stretched over several acres, it was difficult for the church’s council to keep up with maintenance. Kneeling from left are Harriet Bell, Jill Crowson and Hannah Gordon; standing from left are Emma Mott, Louise Jackson, Laura Hornigold and Laura Brown. Photo: MLNF-010986
