Sevenoaks talking point


A Tonbridge shop is set to cease trading after 155 years of business, it has been announced. Heasmans the Jewellers has revealed it will close its doors next month, as David and Maureen Heasman retire after a lifetime in jewellery.

At 80 years old David has probably seen more changes in the high street than most, and it is with some sadness that they have decided to call it a day.

Commenting on his decision to retire, David Heasman says: “This was not a decision I have taken lightly. It is a sad day to close down the business that my Great Grandfather started 155 years ago. But I didn’t want to sell the business; it is and always has been part of our family, so the name has to go with me.”
A closing down sale has now started, and all stock is half price.
