Tony Purcell is sadly escaping to the country (Cowra) this week and we thank him sincerely for being such an active member of this parish and especially over the last two years for his contribution as a Parish Councillor. We wish him good health and every blessing in his new life and pray that he finds a wonderful parish community to join in that rural area.
