How long have you lived in the area?

We’ve been here for about 12 months on and off, we bought a cot­tage down here and my hus­band has been ren­o­vat­ing it. He’s bought all the build­ing ma­te­ri­als lo­cally, when it’s all fin­ished we want to move in there.

What is your job?

We’re both re­tired, it’s lovely to go for walks and en­joy the free time we have.

What do you do with your spare time?

We both play mu­sic, we play guitars and sings. I take my dog, Bobby, for a walk, he’s a maltese shih tzu, he’s quite ac­tive still and he loves walk­ing. We had a hot rod, my hus­band built a hot rod out of bits and pieces. It’s got a bit of ev­ery­thing in it, chevy. My hus­band has been in­ter­ested in cars for a while, I do like his lit­tle car, I love the rock and roll mu­sic that they sang there. Peo­ple were danc­ing, just the at­mos­phere is won­der­ful.

What do you love about liv­ing in this area?

Myrtle­ford is beau­ti­ful, it’s got so much cul­ture. When they had the fes­ti­val, we were here for that. We have fam­ily liv­ing in Wodonga and Al­bury area so it’s very at­trac­tive. The moun­tains and the rivers are just beau­ti­ful. If we go to Al­bury/ Wodonga we go through Yackan­dan­dah, the views take your breath away. Myrtle­ford it­self with the beau­ti­ful shady trees, ev­ery­thing about it is lovely.

If you could get any­one to come to Myrtle­ford, who would it be and why?

It would have to be my friends up in Queens­land, if they could come down that would be great. I’ve got friends in Mary­vale where we came from, and if I could bring them down with me it would be great. You make friends wher­ever you go but it’s sad when you move some­where and have to leave them be­hind. Myrtle­ford is a beau­ti­ful

What is a sig­nif­i­cant cur­rent is­sue that Myrtle­ford faces cur­rently?

I don’t know if there are any is­sues here, we find it all quite nice. We’ve got great foot­paths, lovely trees. The only thing would be get­ting more tourists to spend some cash here in­stead of go­ing through to other places. Myrtle­ford can be quite busy too, al­though it tends to close up early in the af­ter­noon.
