    I like this little element excised from a town. You sure its changed now? 1.2 degree’s hotter or a tower block?

  • It has changed from having a bit a seedy reputation to a very trendy area, with heaps of great Restaurants and Barista cafes, old beat up ford falcons (like the one I had) to BMWs and Mercedes all over the place.!
