It’s all about community spirit in Greenways, SA
On our travels, we get to meet some fantastic people, some real characters, not just fellow travellers, but in local communities as well. A while ago we have had the privilege of meeting a few folks from Greenways in SA.
Don’t get too excited, Greenways is a tiny community, not many people at all, a phone box, a local CFS shed and an oval. No general store, no fuel stop, nothing, except from what I saw, a fairly progressive community spirit.
The reason for our visit was to catch up with some friends that have moved to the area. It was a Friday night and the yet to be named group, had decided that a barbecue should be held at the old tennis club. Pat and I were privileged to be invited, and surprisingly, a lot involved were young people (a lot younger than us), I’m going to call them the Greenways Progress Association, because despite any other discussions in the area, I believe this community wants to thrive and keep their community as one, they want to make progress, they want to survive.
Now … let’s get onto the reason for this story. We met Bruce and Deb, a lovely (well-travelled) couple that have lived in Greenways for quite a while. During our conversation, the Lair was mentioned, I sat there for a while contemplating, before finally asking what this ‘Lair’ was, not only did Bruce tell us, but invited us down the next day for a first-hand look, and sure enough a beverage or two.
By the way Bruce is a bit like a dentist, he doesn’t like showing his face … but loves a chat.
