Julie Patterson: ‘‘My Nanna and Pop, Ernie & Thelma Smith used to live and run the butcher shop here when I was a child. I don't know the actual years. I was born in 1961 so I'd say they were there during 50's, 60's and early 70's. Maybe earlier. There was a stable out the back as well. Great memories of visiting as a child.”
