Ken Hanson was grateful to the people who ensured his dropped wallet was returned.

Faith in humanity

MOST people who now live in Australia thankfully do the right thing.

No more proof of that occurred on Saturday, May 13 when yours truly dropped his wallet outside the butcher shop in High Street, Heathcote, when a fair dinkum individual picked it up and handed it to said butcher who then passed it onto the boys in blue. May I add very clearly “all totally intact”.

So a very big “Aussie thank you!”

Perhaps whoever picked it up should return to the butchers because you may find your next Sunday roast waiting.

This event occurred during the week of celebration for Volunteers Week, of which I am one of hundreds.

This person’s honesty has affected me personally and in doing so has increased my energy level in terms of working for the greater community with my focus on the Rail Trail, my role being project leader.

I can only hope that the next proposed section into Mitchell Shire comes to fruition. I trust it will as I have already made the next 29 mile posts to be installed.

At 72 years of age, I thought it best I make them before I fall off my perch or bike depending on which comes first!
