    Does anyone remember butcher Ball? My Dad, Albert Sampson cleaned up butcher Mendip Ball’s slaughterhouse when he was a lad. The Sampsons lived in Sammy’s newsagents shop above Gordon Lyons” garage and petrol station. Butcher Ball was generous and paid my Dad with meat, a great help to a family of 11 children. My Dad named me Mendip after butcher Ball.
