My name is Terry Bennett,i and my family lived at No 33 winter street,for about 20 years,i remember Sally Brooks very well , she was a lovely woman ,people say winter street was a rough place to live ,all I have is very fond memories of when I lived there,and yes you could leave your key in the door and not be frightened of being burgled ,its a different story now,i could write a book about the wonderful people who lived in that street and Sally was certainly one of them.
