Comments about this page

I worked with Dennis Raistrick from October 1972 to October 1975 before I moved to John Barnes then Brent Cross.
I have very fond memories of my time at Trewins working with Alan van der Pant who I see quite often as he lives locally to the branch.

I keep in touch with Jon Bemment, Pete Laho, David Dunaway (he is now one of my retired partners - I am retirement secretary as well here;) Pat Driscoll and work with Michael Horniman and Richard Timson in the branch here.
Does anyone remember me?

The first time I ever entered Trewins was to purchase a portable radio from this department.  The department was then in the old building, in the basement.  This was in 1957 when I was still at school!  I chose a Roberts radio paying about £12.  I was served by Trevor Kearey, who was a section manager.  He later moved to London as Assitant Buyer on Radio and Telelvision.

You can still purchase a Roberts radio today from the Audio and Television departments. However, it will cost a bit more than £12!
Trevor Keareys' daughter Lis is a partner at John Lewis, Watford.
