How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
I’ve lived here since 1974, so that’s 43 years. It’s a very active community, full of people who care.
What do you do with your time and what do you enjoy about doing it?
I was employed and ran my own business before I retired. I’ve always been involved in community events. I’m the new President of the Parkes Men’s Shed, and was in- volved in starting it up. It’s great to see the benefit to the members who come here and the contribution it makes towards the community.
What do you do to unwind on weekends?
I played squash and golf, but since retiring I spend most of my time assisting in community events.
What are you really good at?
I’ve got strong organisation and management skills.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
To bring healing to people with health issues.
What is your pet hate?
I don’t tend to get upset about things, though I suppose a pet hate would be people who don’t appreciate the advantages they have.
