    Our condolences and thoughts are with you all Linsey, Bruce, Neville, Janene and extended family at this time of Graham’s passing. As a true farming, community and sports man, Graham genuinely had the interests of the local and wider Westland District community at heart – he achieved so much and wasn’t afraid to “say it, as he saw it”… RIP Graham

    We were lucky enough to have Graham and Linsey as our neighbours. Working together seasonally with Graham in the heat of two woolsheds for decades was always going to be character-building!! In reality we were good friends, occasionally helping each other out as neighbours do – not always agreeing but still respectful of each others views. From small beginnings, Graham and Linsey with a work ethic and skill, have build an enterprise and family they could rightly be proud of. I’m just so glad we had a catch-up some weeks ago.
    As they say here – “We’ll see yah again Mate!!”
