60 Years on Great Grandmother Mary Newstead is in another shop doorway. This time supporting her grand-daughter (mum) with the opening of her gift shop in Cliftonville in 1992. And after a brief spell of mum sharing premises with a shoe repair man in Northdown Road in 2002/3, they decided to set up home in Manston together. Elements of this blog charts their struggle with Thanet Council to make a permenant home there.
