Martin Wallis addressed the Chamber meeting yesterday. He is a former SAS officer and what an inspiration.

Martin spoke of his time as a youngster in Bathurst where he was a little “off track” with life at the time.

He decided to join the Army and the rest is history

He is giving up his time Thursday to speak to young people in our area.

Carol Avis from Midcoast Water has arranged for Martin to speak inspirationally on Thursday afternoon to a group of young people who are currently supported by HomeBase in Tuncurry.

Homebase counsellor Joey Engels has welcomed the opportunity to open more young people and says there is space for an additional 20 – 30 young people.

The details are below, if there are any Chamber members who know young people (ages from 7-17 or 18) who might be interested in hearing Martin Wallace speak to a young audience.

Venue: The Loop, 9 South Street, Tuncurry
Date: Thursday 7th September
Estimated start time: 3:30 – 3:45
