Eileen Walker

Eileen Walker and her family moved to the area in 1932. She speaks here about the establishment of St Peter's church and services held around Mount Pritchard.

... a group of ladies and myself - quite a large group of ladies - we set about fund-raising for our new church. And planned giving. And you would give - oh I don't know - maybe fifty cents a week or something. Whatever you could afford out of your wages. It was never very large. It was just something - planned giving envelope - for your church building fund.
