Meet Stephen Patterson
” We moved to the Wollombi area just before our child started school. I commuted to Royal North Shore Hospital as the night radiographer and my wife worked as a Nurse Unit Manager at Mona Vale Hospital. Our son had an amazing education at Laguna Public School and went on to represent Australia in the F1 in schools program for Mt View High School. They won the best engineered car in the world.
We saw that the General Store had immense untapped opportunity. We have changed the cross flow between cafe and store and even built a theatre restaurant. Google says we can’t provide the number of services we do, but what would Google know? “
