Peter Readman- has been our voluntary maintenance coordinator for twenty years.  In that time, he  has carried out maintenance on our two churches, convent, parish office and presbytery.  In addition, he has coordinated the engagement of carpenters, electricians, fencers, plumbers, painters, slate repairers and other tradesmen.  He has helped us fulfil our statutory obligations for health and safety.
Peter has been available and prompt to assist at all hours.  His wife Pat has been a gracious secretary taking phone calls whenever there has been a crisis.  A visiting priest said recently ‘you have a big plant here’.  Only Peter would know how many hours he has given to our community in service since 1991.
Peter has decided to finish this service and will continue to serve us in other ways.

As a result of our Stewardship Program we now have four men doing the maintenance Peter did:  Ben, Colin, Jo and Vern.  There was a hand-over meeting of several hours last Tuesday.  When three of our buildings are over 100 years old, there is much maintenance to be done.
