WONDERFUL to read that Bobby’s is returning to Bournemouth.

I remember the store with much affection, especially 1941.

I was eight years old, and my mum took me to a special children’s Christmas party.

It was run by Alfred Jupp, the leader of the orchestra, and he made up a song for us ‘kids’ -

“I lost my pup up Upper Parkstone”.

I still remember it today.

May the new Bobby’s prosper as the original did in 1915.
