  10. So sorry to read of Peter’s passing, I only have old memories of the old house on Main Drain Road.
    When staying up there for a holiday and we made a mud pool in the driveway and Uncle Tom telling us to get out of there.
    and the milking shed and also bagging potatoes

    Peter carried on the potato business and expanded it by moving the growing to NSW to which credit is due.

    At Peace now
