Blue Gum Hills Men Shed

I am currently the Treasurer of the Blue Gum Hills Men’s Shed. Have been volunteering
at the Men’s Shed for the past 3 years. I consider myself semi retired but maybe would like to work again in my chosen field (but it’s hard to get work when you are in your early 60’s).
From 2009 to 2017 I was a Full time Carer for my elderly mother (something I just had to do)
and before that a 3D CAD Designer/Administrator/Drafter with 28 years of Structural Engineering experience (mainly in the Rail industry at Goninan’s/UGL).
I have lived close by in Wallsend all my life and have seen the town change in so many ways. I am encouraged by what is coming in the future for Wallsend CBD and hope to be able to contribute to the residents and businesses of my town.
