To whom it may concern.
My name is Peter (Parra) Montgomery and I was a previous part owner of The Riverine Grazier newspaper, which
covers the Hay area, and western towns of Southern Riverina.
I worked on the paper from July 1999 until November 2007 – covering all local topics, but
Anthony Bennett was a regular subscriber, producing sporting articles on the Hay Rams Soccer Club in his role as Publicity Officer with that organisation.
Anthony had a keen interest in the town’s activities, and was a Volunteer Fire Fighter with the local Bush Fire Brigade; actively involved with the Boy Scouts Association;
as well as being an announcer on local Community Radio.
Anthony has a good imagination – and he loves writing.
As a teen, he wrote many ‘stories’ on local people – turning fact into fiction – and he kept everyone entertained on long bus ‘sporting trips’ by reading these stories
on the ‘way home from sporting activities’.
Good bloke Anthony, with a heart of gold.
