Birth*16 Nov 19341 
Marriage*Spouse: Thomas Allan 'Allan' King.
 
Occupation*bt 1969 - 1988 Guys Hill Store Keepers taking over from Shirley's parents Mena & Alec Baker, who had ran it since c1958.2 
Village BellJan 1980The article reads: The new year was only 3/4 of an hour old when the Brigade had it's first call for 1980. The incident was at Guys Hill where a station wagon coming up the hill got out of control, sheared off the petrol bowser and smashed through the shop window of Allan and Shirley King's milk bar. Fortunately there was no fire, but the brigade covered the possibility of a petrol fire while the tow truck removed the vehicle and remained to help tidy up the badly damaged shop.3 
Village Bell*Nov 1980The article reads: Shirley and Allan King returned to the Guys Hill Store on October 2 after 8 weeks overseas. Shirley won the airfare for two to London in a lucky draw at the end of a weekend Women's Weekly Seminar.
On arriving in London they hired a car to tour England, Scotland and Wales. Then, travelling by bus toured Sweden and Denmark, and another bus trip to Belgium, Holland, Germany, italy, Switzerland, France, back to London and home.
Shirley made the comment that the bus tours only seem to skim the surface, not allowing time to see the people, but an excellent way to see a lot in a short time. In fact, it has just whetted their appetite to go back and visit each country in depth.
The Guys Hill Store has been in the family a long time, 22 years this month; 11 with Shirley's parents, mena and Alex Baker and 11 years with Shirley and Allan. During the trip Mena Baker looked after children Allison and Alexandra.
Allan, who gave up breeding smooth haired fox terriers for lack of time has had two Metropolitan wins with a race horse he bred himself and has another horse in training.4

Village BellAug 2001The article reads: Just a tale!
When Alan and Shirley King took over the shop at Guys Hill, from the Bakers (Shirley's parents) the usual stocktaking of goods on the shelves was performed, Alan was surprised to find a very large number of bottles of Citronella on the shelf, and felt it was much more than he could ever sell.
It worried him for a while, then his curiosity overcame his shyness, and he asked his father-in-law the reason. "Oh," said Mr. Baker, "you'll need all that—when the mosquitoes are bad, the nudist colony uses a lot." (The nudist colony was at the low end of High Street, and has an interesting history, which will be disclosed in another Bell.)8 
Village BellAug 2001The article reads: Guys Hill Store and the Kings
The recent closure of the business and impending sale of the site, has prompted recent writings about the store and post office which has served the Guy's Hill/Upper Beaconsfield area so well for a number of years.
Many residents feel saddened by the loss of such a vital part of the community, the "hub" of the Guys Hill area, and the many proprietors who have always gone out of their way to provide a community approach to business.
I wish to reinforce those sentiments already so well expressed in the Upper Beaconsfield "Village Bell" and Pakenham Gazette, and to add further thanks to another generation or two of storekeepers, the Kings; a piece of history not yet mentioned.
When our family first moved to the area in the 1970s, the store was a thriving business. Shirley and Alan King and their family, who ran the store from 1970, engendered a wonderful, generous community spirit and always endeavoured to please their clientele. It was a pleasure to shop at the Guys Hill store and we would often go out of our way to make purchases there. Shirley and the girls, Alexandra and Allison ably continued to run the business after Alan's sudden death in 1987, until 1988 when it was sold to the Southorns.
The Kings had taken over the business from Shirley's parents, Mr and Mrs Baker, who operated it from 1958 until 1970. The store had, in fact, been "in the family" for thirty years ! I'm sure I speak for many others when I say a heartfelt "thankyou" to the Kings for their part in serving this community—at the store.9 
Death*6 Jun 2011 VIC, Australia. 
Death-Notice*8 Jun 2011KING (nee Baker). Shirley passed away peacefully on June 6, 2011, aged 76 years. Loving wife of Allan (dec.) Cherished mother of Allison and Alexandra. Sister of Alex.

Village Bell*Sep 1987The article reads: Vale Allan King
Many people in this district were saddened by the sudden death of Allan King on Sunday, 7th June, 1987. Allan took over the Guys Hill Store in 1970 and became an important part of the wider community. He was an old-fashioned storekeeper, always ready with a joke and always ready to argue without fear or favour on any topic. The Store became a place where friends met and where news was exchanged.
He was a vigorous man and worked long hours, always putting his family first. the Store allowed him little time for other interests, but he was a successful breeder of smooth-haired fox terriers and of thoroughbred horses.
Allan leaves his wife, Shirley, and his two daughters, Alison and Alexandra. We sympathise with them in their great loss. It was, of course, our loss, too. In small towns like Guys Hill the Corner Store is an important place, and in this case the man behind the counter was a vital part of the community.
Fortunately, Shirley has decided to carry on the business she shared with Allan. Her many friends in the area salute her courage and wish her well.6
