Since then, talk of closure has changed to talk of expansion, while the

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene pays a visit to the
hospital to speak to people who have worked here down through the years. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103″

Michelle Barry from Devine Promotions in Six Mile Bridge who is overseeing all the Couples prepartaions has great praise for not only John and Margaret but all the other Competing Couples as they have been preparing very hard for this Competion since last August.
