I’m Mary it’s my job to help local people realise that their “if only” thoughts are often achievable if we are able to work together.
For the last six years I have worked in Stockland Green. I am overwhelmed by the breadth of talent, generous spirit and willingness that lies within the local community.
By linking ideas, working with other local agencies and listening to local people, I harness the potential that there is within Stockland Green. I can help groups come together and gain status as a community interest group, which allows that group to attract funding for their project which is something else I can help with. The variety of groups and projects I have worked with is wide ranging… from helping to form a support group for families affected by Autism to alleyway clean-up projects to restoring the island within Brookvale Park. Getting things off the ground is often difficult – most people I work with volunteer their time and have to fit things in around their families and lives, but there isn’t a working day that goes by when I fail to see at first hand, just how very kind and committed the people of Stockland Green are.
