A WANSTEAD jeweller celebrating 25 years of trading on the High Street is hoping to strike gold in a national competition.

David Keating, 60, of Keating Jewellers has submitted several rings set with precious stones to the National Association of Goldsmiths Craftsmanship and Design Awards.

He said: “I don’t know if my designs are good enough to win, but I thought I’d give it a shot.”

To celebrate 25 years in Wanstead, Mr Keating is giving away a free pair of silver earrings to anyone who spends more than £25 in his shop before the end of November.

He added: “There have been some hard years keeping the shop open.

"We moved here in the middle of a recession and I think it was even tougher then than it is now.

“Luckily the people of Wanstead have got to know us. I think they trust us, and they’ve been very good to us.”

Let us hope they enjoy another 25 years there at least despite the draconian parking measures introduced recently and those proposed in the near future.
