She made a difference
PROPERTY in Toodyay sells more because of the town than the house – in other words, potential buyers first fall for the town and then go looking for a house.
When I’m out and about with clients, I love to talk about what the town has to offer – all those things that we residents sometimes take for granted.
The sense of community, the volunteers, and the overall support given often by few for the many.
Take for instance, Marg O’Sullivan, who you may know as ‘Marg from the Bank.’Read more
Well, sadly, there’s no ‘Marg from the Bank’ anymore and, after 18 years of putting her heart and soul into the growth of the Toodyay and Districts Bendigo Community Bank she’s now hung up her green pixie suit and other mad-cap costumes and has begun the next chapter of her life.
I for one am very sad to see the end of such an inspirational and highly energetic career.
For the past 18 years I’ve seen Marg race from one committee meeting to the next, from one not-for-profit organisation to another, always with nothing more driving her than a love for the town she calls home and her need to connect the community to its community bank.
I’ve lived in Toodyay for all of Marg’s 18 bank years and – because of her – my opinion of the bank and its place in my community is what I’ve always described to potential new residents as quintessentially Toodyay.
It’s part of what makes Toodyay a community town.
Quite simply, Marg O’Sullivan’s presence at the bank will be sadly missed.
