Prayosha sweetshop and newsagent is the most recent shop to close its doors for good in Well Street Market. It closed last Friday, and the locals are very unhappy about it – it was a well-loved shop that had been there for many years, and the owners had two small children.
A local resident made a short video from outside the shop on Saturday.
It's the latest shop to close as a direct result of the unreasonable demands of the St John, Hackney, Joint Estates Charities.
It seems ridiculous that they have the nerve to call themselves "Charities". And their information and figures at the Charities Commission are pretty interesting.
