Cooneana Heritage Centre, 1041 Redbank Plains Road New Chum

Greg Jacko Lyons from Lost Ipswich has many photos of small stores that once graced nearly every corner in Ipswich. In this popular presentation Jacko will show his photos and share stories about the life and times of the owners of the stores.

Many families operating these small shops - selling just about everything you could need from milk to tacks - became like extended family to their customers. Within easy reach, they were the go-to stores for local families before supermarkets were common.

The presentation begins at 10.30am and will conclude at approximately 12pm. Enjoy morning tea and stay after the presentation for a tour of Cooneana Heritage Centre - all included.
