Hi Guys,
Can any one remember the Jone's milk bar on the corner of Poulton Rd and Lloyds corner? Do any of you have any photos at all? Great to hear from you about this!! Always a smile and great coffee from Sylvia Twigg the waitress. Jess

Hi, I only remember the coffee bar after it closed down. Sylvia Twigg was my nan. She worked at Lodges after she left the milk bar.

Sorry,but I do think that Gepp's was next door but one to the milk bar.In between was a general store. In the summer of 1976 which was a heatwave,I remember Mrs Twigg collapsing after taking a cold drink of lemonade in the general store.

Hi thanks for that. Would you have any photos of the area at all? We are building our family tree and would like to add photos as a part of the story of the members on our tree. Thanks Jess

I've come across a couple of negatives, can't really see much detail. Maybe you'd be intrested in having them properly developed?

I don't remember the milk bar but there was a cafe - The Swinging Door (?) - close to Gepps , may have been by the bus stop , late '70's / early '80's .
