David Clark: Lewes Business Stories: WE Clark & Son, Jewellers
Back in 1919, Wilfred Ernest Clark purchased an existing jewellery showroom at 1 Cliffe High Street (that had been going since 1819) and laid the foundations of a passion that is now in the hands of the third and fourth generation, John and David Clark. David will tell the story behind his family’s business success over nearly 100 years, including the early days, the WWII years, its expansion into Eastbourne and the 2012 amalgamation of its two shops in Lewes into 224 High Street.
