Scope and content

Paul Bovington with his beautiful dog Crackers. Nephew Richard Bovington said
"The poor old dog never recovered from having his paw run over by a Land Rover."

Paul was a lovely man, always doing things for others. His wife was Pauline , sons Michael and Simon. Mike passed away in 2018. Paul was one of the founder members of the SPAJERS (Society for the Preservation of Ancient Junketing.) He was a good friend to Les King when, after 5 years of running Kings of Bampton without a break Les became very run-down. Dr Bullen prescribed oysters and Guinness to get him full of energy again and Paul said, if he (Les) would provide the Guinness he'd provide the oysters and they'd eat and drink together. Dr Bullen's advice did the trick.

Paul was a prison visitor, taking the time to talk with prisoners who had no visitors. Along with brother Les, Paul owned the wet fish shop which is now a private dwelling, No11 High Street.
