How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like about living here? I have lived in Forbes for 11 years after moving from Tullibigeal. Forbes is a friendly town with a great range of services. South Lead Road is close to town but still far enough out that I enjoy the peace and quiet and friendly neighbours. Living on the Lachlan River is very relaxing.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I have a small farm contracting business, SLR Contracting, with my family. I enjoy meeting a lot of different people and doing a variety of jobs.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I like to spend time relaxing on the riverbank with a fishing rod in one hand and a beer in the other.
What are you really good at? DIY projects at home especially for our ever expanding garden. My wife comes up with the ideas and I have to bring them to fruition.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? To be able to pick next week’s lotto numbers. Seriously… it would be a great super power to be able to fix all the pain and suffering in the world.
What is your pet hate? Theft and vandalism. If it’s not yours don’t touch it.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. My best holiday was in 2013 when my family and I went to the USA. The highlight was Disneyland and seeing so many other Californian attractions.
