BACKGROUND

Who Am I?

As a resident of Winchelsea, I have long been involved in community - Chair of Winchelsea Community House, Secretary of the Winchelsea Star community newspaper, an active firefighter with the Wurdale CFA Brigade, and in times past involved with the Winchelsea Business & Tourism Association (now merged into Growing Winchelsea) and stints as Secretary and Treasurer of the Winchelsea Lions Club.

I run my own business, Winch Websites, which provides digital marketing (websites, newsletters, internet automation) to small and micro businesses and non-profits. I have a particular focus on community centres.

I'd like to see our local communities and the Surf Coast Shire continue to be great places to live, work & play. Not good or OK, but great. This is wonderful part of the world to be, we'll need to actively participate in keeping it that way.
