“I moved to Melville from Bunbury early 1964, and purchased our present home in Mount Pleasant. Our son was keen to join the Sea Scouts when he was 8, a meeting was held and from this the first Waylen Bay Sea Scout Group was formed. I designed the club building in 1970. The first sailing dingy obtained by the group was named after me and for over 40 years was the fastest scout boat on the river.
I joined the Rotary Club of Attadale in 1997 and retired in 2012 having held the office of treasurer for the final 10 years. I arranged over 1,000,000 used stamps to be cut and sent overseas to OXFAM. I was awarded the Harris Fellow in 2007 and was also made an honorary member.
I am currently treasurer of the Probus Club of Attadale and have been a member for 20 years. In 2001, I was awarded a Certificate of Merit Safety Award from Fire and Rescue Services for organising the installation of 325 smoke alarms into the Melville homes of senior citizens.
Trevor spent over 20 years working to maintain and aid construction of marine facilities including Deep Water Point, Bicton Baths and Point Walter Jetties. He and his wife walk to Garden City four times a week from their house they have lived in for over 50 years and believe it’s important to stay active while you still can.
