Kirit1999. I bought that shop and took over from that day I’ve always been here since today. DJ stands for my niece, Davica, and my father, Jay. A lot of customers got used to it ... where are you, I’m at DJ.
Ha ha … so it was like a landmark ... it's already been developed, I mean if you ask most of the people, Kirit’s shop, they will literally tell you, 'Oh, place to be.' I mean, all the kids, I make sure they are safe because whenever I tell them, 'If you have any trouble, just run into the shop, we’ll call the parents. If you are out there alone and nothing to do, then just come to the shop, sit down, whatever you want to do.' You become okay, a shopkeeper but more friends as well and obviously they return the favours in that they’re your customers basically.
So yeah that type of thing. I love this estate when they built it, it’s brick built, it’s solid, it’s strong.
Carnivals, beautiful, I’ve seen all of them, more or less even the rough part when we were at Wornington and when the rioting happens and all that. Those days are all gone. Nowadays it’s well-controlled, well-managed, but even bigger. To manage carnival, it is quite a boom for us, it is a big business for us.
Once this estate goes, I hope they keep the name, because that’s the only way if I ever walk past or drive past or anything, I will just picture this. Whatever they build here, it will be just a new thing, but I will just picture this, this is the memory.
People ... they’re amazing, like I said. I mean, if you think about it, I spend more time here than at home. So I literally live at this. I will miss it. It’s like me leaving my home when I go. Maybe shed a tear here and there.
