Gilberts sweet shop Eastney

I heard a rumour that it's shut or closing, please tell me this isn't so.

I have visited this sweet heaven for 40 years now and as I no longer have grandparents there anymore I look forward to my annual pilgrimage there.

We have a lookey like shop called mr sims sadly a very poor copy.

Please can someone help?

I'll nip by in the week and have a look, it was where I spent all my pocket money when I went to Milton Juniors!

It's been threatened with closure a few times in the last couple of years.

I pop in now and again

Couldn't tell you exactly where, but know it's by the park as I don't live in Portsmouth, but if you google it you will find it x
