The original Gurus in Court Arcade (circa 1980)!


The original Gurus.L to R: Irene, Tony and Beryl. Taken in the 1980’s judging by Irene and Bery’s curly perms. Irene was the original Mrs Guru and was also Beryl’s mam. She is sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

About Beryl Maughan Hankin

Guru is an independent fair trade boutique that has been active since 1972 in Darlington, UK. I work there with my best friends Tony and Colin. In addition to my other duties, I manage social media for the shop and spin-off activities and for myself. Growing up back in the 1940s I never could have imagined such a thing as being able to communicate with people all over the world via the internet but here we are doing just that. To quote Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip this has been" - and for us at least, it's not over yet! #gurutribeforever
