My Mum Sue (who is now 63.5 years old), worked for Mr and Mrs Hawkey at Hawley's cafe 50 years ago, when she was 13.5 years old, for two seasons. Approximately 5 weeks ago, out of the blue, she found halfway down her driveway a business card - on the front a picture was a picture of blue and lilac flowers, and written on the back:
With the compliments of Hawkeys LTD, Tel 62642. The Capitol Cafe, Accommodation 600. The Premier Cafe, 200. North Prom, Cleethorpes. Estd Over 50 years. Quick service, Civility, and the Best of Everything As you Like It! Food cooked to a Nicety.

My Mum found it strange that after 50 years, this card should land on her property, when there are 230 houses on her road. Is anyone from this thread still here?

Hi I just received a message that you had posted. Gosh isn't that strange that the card should just appear. John and Edna Hawkey are my great grandparents. I believe I have a photo of the front of the card but had no idea what was on the back. I live inTasmania, Australia and would be most grateful if you are able to give me any information on them. If you are able to scan the card for me that would be great. Sorry I can't help with the mystery card but I'm certainly glad it turned up.
Cheers Pauline

Hi, thank you for replying, great to hear from you. I have a photograph of the front and back of the card, I'd be pleased to send it to you if you can send your email in a private message to me? My Mum has some memories of her time working for Mr and Mrs Hawkey, I can share by email too.
Best wishes
