Aunty and Uncle to Lisa Levis, Betty & Walter lived in The Bungalow on 5 Elms Road. Being cattle dealers for the local farm, most working days were spent at cattle markets and the rest of their time was filled with cooking steak and kidney pie, tapioca pudding & walnut cake, tending to honeysuckle and harvesting raspberries, going to parties to play matchbottle and newmarket and drinking Camp Coffee!
Uncle Walter often wore chestnut coloured trousers with a brown belt around his waist, white or yellow shirt and a knitted tank top. He wore a handkerchief tied at all four corners in the summer time. He enjoyed watching the horse racing on a Saturday in his armchair.
Aunty Betty had a fondness for red setters and loved taking them for long walks in the barley fields, then home for tea and a neat slice of marble cake which she would eat whilst wearing her flowery apron.
