Cupits Shop Clipstone - Then & Now

This early photo (not dated) shows Cupits & Needhams shops at the beginning of Clipstone village possibly in the 1920’s.  Bill Cupit (shopkeeper) was related to the Cupits of Forest Town but we have no information on the Needhams. Does anybody have more information?

The second photo was taken in December 2018.

  • I am a bit too young to remember Cupits, but I do remember Needhams, next door. I was born in 1955, and lived on Central Drive next to the Cat pub. Me and my Mum would walk over the back, to the main road where we would come out next to this shop. Before I started work I had a saturday and sunday morning job working for Mr & Mrs Kelly who had the shop as a green grocer .
