We are a brother and sister team who are grateful for having lived in Clyde. I attended the Clyde Primary School from 1953-1958 and the local Methodist Sunday School.
My brother John wrote and illustrated the first publication, A Clyde History in 1978.
My parents were active in the CFA, cricket club, School Committee,CWA, Mothers' Club and the 1978 Jubilee Committee for the Clyde Public Hall. My parents were residents of Clyde from 1947- 1996.
I taught at the Cardinia Primary school after I had finished my training at Frankston Teachers College.
