How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? We moved here in 1997, it really is a lovely big village. I walk slower now, time is less critical.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I’m retired from paid employment, and assist with Anglican Church worship commitments and being part of the vibrant team of volunteers at Georgie’s Pantry.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? Gardening is such great soothing therapy. I also love reading and going mad doing Sudokus.
What makes you proud? I’m thankful to God for such a great family of Sandra, our children and grandchildren, their Christian values and attitude to others. Very thankful for volunteers who assisted at the Pantry during this drought period.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? Probably a turtle (pull your head in Derrick), and swim whenever I liked – cool!
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? Movie: To Kill a Mocking Bird; book: Long Walk To Freedom by Nelson Mandela; Song: Abraham, Martin & John sung by Dion.
Tell us about your best holiday. We have been to Ireland three times and in 2015 we also attended the Anzac Dawn service at the Villers Bretonneux Australian National Memorial on the Western front. The Irish humour knocks me out!
What is on your bucket list? I want to fly! I used to jump off the woodshed as a kid, and I still can’t get it right. Kangaroo Island when it’s open again would be great.
