|Bakery: hot pies, salad rolls, drinks, cakes, friendly chats!|
Scotty the "would-be mechanic" rocked up as we were siting outside the bakery, sampling their pies/sausage rolls and milkshakes. He apologised firstly for not being able to fix our tyre and recommended we drive further to Inverell (another 56kms) for assistance. Seemingly he had sold off much of his equipment - and many of the town's businesses had also closed in the past two years. In fact, the only signs of life in Ashford were the pub, bakery, Rural Transaction Centre and agricultural supplies store.
