Godfrey, in partnership with Carole, clearly enjoyed convening Art Appreciation for a number of years, continuing to attend after handing over the convenor role to Neville Gibb and Meg Dillon at the end of 2017. Godfrey was also a long standing member of Terry Case's Politics and Current Affairs class.
When Carole decided to join Writing Workshop in 2015, Godfrey 'sat in', then quickly decided to join himself. The sharing of stories about their working lives in the rural sector by Godfrey, David Palmer and Ian Burkinshaw sparked the flame that resulted in David being encouraged to offer the 'Stock and Land' course in 2018. You can find some of the stories Godfrey shared at Godfrey's Stories.
Until relatively recently Godfrey was a judge at the Benalla Agricultural Show and still clearly treasured times spent working with sheep and wool. Godfrey drew on his networks in the wool industry in arranging an excursion for the Stock and Land group to the Toland Merino Stud, a highlight for all participants.
Godfrey will be sadly missed. Carole, please know that you have our love and support at this sad time.
