Family sent packing after 60 years


Family sent packing after 60 years

Social Share

Jeffrey Stoute, at 62, is standing on a shaky foundation. On Tuesday, he and his sister Margaret, 58, were told by the landlord to dismantle their homes by today  or have them pushed down after living on the land for almost 60 years.

The family had been served with a court order previously.

With the deadline creeping up on them, the family was busy yesterday packing their household belongings in anticipation of losing their homes. However, they were hoping to have a stay of execution until they could find another parcel of land.

There are two houses belonging to the brother and sister, as well as an autobody workshop on the property. (LK)
