She said ‘Yes’!

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - Erica Mur­ree

WHILE ev­ery­one else was in on the se­cret, Niki Burchett had no idea her part­ner of seven years was about to pop the ques­tion.

In amongst the fire­works at Par­adise Dam on New Year’s Eve, over the PA sys­tem care­taker Corey Goldie asked Ms Burchett to marry him.

And although taken by to­tal sur­prise, she had no hes­i­ta­tion in say­ing “yes”.

Later Ms Burchett said she­was gen­uinely sur­prised by the ro­man­tic ges­ture.

“Ev­ery­one else knew, but I had no idea,” she said.

“I’m really im­pressed how he in­cluded it in with the fire­works.

“I think the sur­rounds of the Par­adise Dam would be a good venue (to get mar­ried).”

Mr Goldie said ever since they, with their son Harry, had moved from Mary­bor­ough to take over the care­tak­ing po­si­tion at Par­adise Dam on July 1 last year, they had been in a hap­pier place.

“If you can work to­gether and live to­gether, you may as well get mar­ried as that’s what mar­riage is,” he said.
