Dear Fellow Directors [Bronwyn and David] ,
I have recently spent 4 days in Darwin helping sort out some of William’s medical and living problems.
Costs incurred were,
The flight to and from Darwin from Melbourne $818.98
The hire car and insurance $388.50 plus$42.33 petrol
A visit to Paul Maher lawyer re Trust Account to be sent to Tong Luck Trust
Clothes, dental products $187 [126, 7.50, 53.90]
2 spare keys for the unit downstairs. $16
Respiratory mask and filters $303.28
Dental visits x2 Nightcliff $230 to be paid, $100 to me re 16/10/2018 visit, $130 to dentist re 19/10/2018 visit.
I would like to request that the Dental Bills are forwarded as they come in to Bronwyn to arrange payment. This will be reasonably expensive unfortunately as he has about 15 fillings, possibly a crown and several teeth stumps to extract. Possibly 3-5,000 over the next 8 months. I will speak to the dentist Monday re emailing the bills
I am happy to pay the costs of the trip part this time, airfares and car, but will seek reimbursement of these costs on subsequent visits.
I have receipts for some and credit card details for the others if needed. Liz is busy typing up a summary of the visit.
Looking forward to discussing this and some of the other issues from the visit if you can give me a call and we will have to work out a TLT meeting fairly soon.
Yours Sincerely , Harry.
My name is Elizabeth Lee. One of my husband’s favourite Aunt’s has asked me to do a small introduction today at the launch of yet another amazing book. So here is a part of her story, mainly an understanding of her, why she has chosen this story to tell is up to her.
Vivienne Worthington, nee Gathercole, was one of 6 children of Harold and May Gathercole, long term Panton Hill residents. Her families connections go back to the early days of Panton Hill , but obviously not as far back as some, or we would be talking about Gathercole Hill instead. Vivienne spent most of her early life up to 20 here and still returned with her family to the farm at Alma road to see her Mum and Dad every Christmas and in between for 40 years.
Her interest was piqued by coming across a member of the Panton family and realising that Panton Hill had a beginning and history that she was not aware of and many a tale to tell. who were the first settlers, who were the Panton’s, how did the village get it’s name, what happened to them and others in those times and since.
Vivienne was helped in her endeavors by work she had previously done locally on her family tree which led to a lot of local genealogical knowledge.Growing up in Panton Hill she knew people to talk to and had also absorbed a lot of local knowledge on places in the area and which sites to look up information on.
Vivienne’s passion for writing and history has developed later in her life after meeting her second husband and having the time to devote to writing which he supported. She is one of those people who has taken to the computer age with gusto developing dormant abilities. She has written a book on the Eureka stockade from a viewpoint of the women involved and one on the Pioneer Bus company, both being related to family members who had involvement. This book fills in an important part of the early pioneering history of this area and community and the people who helped create it .
Serendipity is the term for unexpected fortunate occurrences. I think I will find the book more interesting due to connections with Shepparton where we live to Panton Hill. One of the chemists here for many years was a Panton. And the McPherson family who settled here and ran our newspapers were among the earliest settlers of Panton Hill.
Vivienne has produced another good book to digest. has developed an easy reading style which encompasses a lot of research yet is still enjoyable to read.
With no further ado I present Mrs Vivienne Worthington.
