This Christmas will see the end of an era at Bedford Corner as Mr Lad shuts up shop to retire.

With so many people wanting to bid him a fond farewell, we thought it a fitting tribute to publish Memories of Mr Lad.

For more than 30 years Mr Lad, whose real name is Kishur Mistry but assures us that Mr Lad is just fine, has been the smiling face that greets men women and children alike in his Chiswick newsagents.

However, due to the expiry of his lease, he has decided to call it a day.

He will be greatly missed by everyone.
