Aubergines

Worcester, United Kingdom Gb

Can someone please tell me what I ought to do with the side shoots growing on the plants which already have maturing fruit on them ?.I have already harvested some of the fruit and several smaller ones are slowly growing.
They are in an unheated greenhouse and looking very healthy. I take off any old leaves that seem to wilt but the new growth looks good.

Yes, keep new growth, maybe cut off some old stuff
