The world’s greatest butcher, Leo Payne, at last count 80 years young, is finally hanging up his apron and chopper after 43 years of gallant service.
Leo, known the globe over as The Sausage King, is shutting up shop on the weekend of 28-29.
He has not only been a wonderful butcher for more than four decades, but the Sandshoes BRC’s most loyal sponsor.
Every Club member there has ever been knows only too well how good his snags taste. They have blessed many a Shoes contest barbecue.
Those sausages have meant the difference between winning and losing a heat.
The South Cronulla community is sending Leo off in style at a barbecue to end all barbecues at the South Cronulla Bowling Club on Sunday 29 June, starting around 12 noon.
All Shoes members are invited to attend. The Club has made a donation to the event coffers.
We loves ya Leo!
