Hawkeys Cafe on Cleethorpes Promenade.....
« on: Thursday 17 April 14 13:03 BST (UK) »
Hi, does anyone know where I can access old photos of Hawkey's Cafe on Cleethorpes sea front.  My mother in law was a Hawkey before she was married and was part owner of it.  She used to work in the cafe also, many years ago now, in the summer. She told me a story a long time ago now, about when her father was in charge, if he could see just one person walking down the promenade, he wouldn't close up, incase he lost a customer.

If you Google Hawkeys Café Cleethorpes, and follow the fourth link (Grimsby & Cleethorpes History Club), there's a photo of the café there.

Hi, hope it brought back some good memories!  I found the picture that STG told me about and I also found another pic of the front of Hawkeys on the prom, which was on a facebook site called 80s - 90s hangouts, which someone told me about.  I could send you them if you wanted them, if you PM'd me your email address.

A blast from the past; I remember going there a lot when I was a girl living at Cleethorpes

Hi, my great grandfather was John Hawkey.  I have been researching the family tree for some years now and would love to talk with anyone who would like to share information on the family.  I also have photos of the old cafes.

Hi, allthough I cant help you in your search, I do remember the cafes on the Cleethorps Prom and at Riby Square Cleethorpes Road, as I said above ..2 of my sisters worked for the Hawkey family.

My sister is now in her 80's and we live a long way from each other,but I have spoken on the telephone and told her about this thread,and she remembers Violet and Eric Hawkey but that is all.

I would appreciate having the photos you have....I did get some from the lady who put another post on here, and they were great to see.

Many thanks

Happy to email the photos.  I am not really up to speed on using this site, are you able to give me your email address?  Or do I send the photos through this site?
