Tears for a ?special building
"I KNOW it's only a building, but it's a special building," a teary Wendy Wright said yesterday as she watched an excavator demolish the burnt out shell that used to be her family home.
Mrs Wright (nee Sanne) was part owner of the building that housed the Little Blue Wren store at 193 River Street.
The property belonged to her grandparents, Sid and Christina Sanne, and was passed on to her father Mel Sanne.
It was the place where Mrs Wright spent many of her childhood holidays, sharing rooms with female
boarders, who spent the working week in rented accommodation with her grandmother Christina.
"I am devastated," Mrs Wright said.
"I just can't believe it, so many years of our memories gone and we can't bring it back.
"My grandparents and my Dad absolutely loved living there.
"It's always been a home base for us ... and now it's being bulldozed away. It's such a huge loss for ev- eryone."
