Lynne Price

 I have worked in the welfare environment for over 15 years and am passionate about providing opportunities for community development.  I enjoy working with people to find the solutions that work for them and can contribute a wide range of experiences and community connections.


I met my husband when he was serving in the Army and we live locally surrounded by a variety of animals and a huge vege garden that feeds my jam making hobby. As a parent and grandparent I live a busy life and understand the curve balls life can through at you.


I look forward to meeting you and hope we can work together to keep our community strong.
