JENNY Brash knows quite a lot about Vermont. She came to live as a 10-year-old at the end of WW2. Vermont was, at the time, very much a country town. She attended Vermont State School from Grades 5 to 8, walking slowly along unmade roads to get there. In the late 1940s her father was a returned serviceman, and as such he was able to acquire materials to build, in Vernal Avenue, a ‘proper house’ – distinct from the then common fibro cement. There are still family members living there. Jenny has a long and continuing close relationship with Vermont – she still lives there, and knows lots of history and lots of stories about the district and looks forward to sharing them with us at our June 5 General Meeting.
