How long have you lived in Parkes? Barry, Heather, Derek and I moved here in November 1979. I love the smaller town community environment. Easy to shop, easy to park and easy to make friends.
What do you do currently and do you enjoy about it? I teach scripture at three primary schools. I love the preparation, the feedback from the kids and to see them enjoy the lesson and get something from it. We all enjoy singing together.
What do you do in your spare time? We are now retired and enjoy going to church to worship, family, gardening, car club activities, craft groups and friends.
What are you really good at? I might be a bit of an organiser. I enjoy seeing everyone getting together to make something good happen.
What is your pet hate? Swearing – I hate it when I do it and hearing it come out of childrens’ mouths, especially when God or Jesus’ name is used as a swear word.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? To make the love that Bishop Michael Curry (Royal Wedding) spoke about, become a reality all over the world.
Tell us about your best holiday. When Barry and I take short trips around Australia in the caravan. Every trip has been the best one. I also enjoy short trips with the Parkes Antique Car Club to see things we have driven past for years and enjoy the fellowship of other collectors of fine old cars.
