“Hello, my name is Gail and I have the pleasure of volunteering at Chamberlain Gardens.
I was born in the Hunter Valley, but my parents moved to the Central Coast when I was quite young. At that time there were very few houses and it was a great place to grow up. The lake was quite close by and we were able to spend our relaxation time fishing which we all enjoyed.
Both of my parents passed away at relatively young age, I was only 26 at the time.
I married and have two children, a son and a daughter. They both live near where I grew up.
We had a shop called “Munchies” at Budgewoi, where we sold fresh seafood and take away food. We sold the shop three years later so that the children could have a more stable lifestyle.
