“What is a good life for people over the age of 50?”

Community projects such as The Good Life Project wouldn’t be able to get off the ground without volunteers, our wonderful Theatre buddies Kay, Karolina, Meredith, Yimin and Alyce are fundamental to the project’s success. A special thanks to Alyce and Yimin for bringing an intergenerational aspect to the project, young people bring new mindsets and knowledge having great energy for a good life.

 

About the Hutt St Centre

Hutt St Centre is a place of connection and support, where people facing homelessness are empowered to rebuild their lives, rediscover their identities and reconnect with those who love them.

We walk alongside people on their journey toward homefulness—a word we use to describe the feeling of safety, control and confidence that comes with having a place to call home.

When people walk through our doors we help fulfil their immediate needs, like a shower, a meal, and a charged phone, while our 20+ visiting services provide support ranging from medical check-ups to financial counselling.

And with a focus on the future, we connect people with housing, education and employment opportunities to build the skills and confidence to change their circumstances for good.

About the Author

Living on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria with my wife Liz and having taken up writing only a handful of years ago I have discovered to my great joy the wonderful world of creating stories. I hope who ever may read this book will in some way escape into my vision of wonderment and intrigue of unadulterated realms of the imagination. Photography by Peter Lamont.

English Grammar Book

A great resource for those needing a practical, concise and clear explanation of the principles and use of English Grammar.

The book is 145 pages divided into easy read chapters.

From the Author

I completed my “Masters in English” with “Awards Of College Colours” and “Roll Of Honour” in the sports field (professional boxer) and came to Australia on a scholarship in 2008. In Australia, I got the chance to meet people from all countries and do further English language research. This book is written after interviewing natives of many countries, having an English second language, and understanding the problems they face in the English language. This classical piece of work is an efficient tool for those who want to learn the basic logistics of the English language. It will significantly help to master skills in sentences building, formation, correct usage, and structure. In addition, it will work as a “One-Stop-Shop” for Grammarians.

It takes extensive time to complete this book due to my tight schedule and high volume of interviews from people worldwide. I spend lots of time (Ground Zero) at the University of Adelaide, University of South Australia, and Flinders University (Australia) for my research work, even-thou I was never a student of these universities. Now that, despite voluminous odds, this book has happened, I have hopes and prayers regarding it.

I am fortunate that Navneet Kaur (Masters in English, Roll Of Honour Holder, functioned as strategic-Journalist in “The Tribune” Newspaper) scrutinize the manuscript and proposed expansions.

I am indebted to sharp-witted Advocate, Mr. Inderbir Singh S/O Mr. J.J Singh Hundal (Comdt.) for helpful thoughts and working on all legalities.

I wish to record my gratitude to my wife, Engr. Karamveer Kaur (M. tech), for help with graphics (pictures, tables). She was unstinted support at every corner with affection and analysis. It is reverential to admit that my father was the strongest pillar of support and guidance.

At last, I am obliged and fortunate that I got an opportunity to complete my research work (Masters) under the guidance of intellectuals like Professor, Mrs. Reetinder Joshi (Govt. College Ludhiana) and Prof. Kalia (Head of Dept. S.C.D.  Govt. College Ludhiana).

PAPERBACK

MARTHA

Just as true love brings happiness, so it brings heartbreak and surprises.

The story of Martha is a sequel to the novel Red, revealing the heart-warming journey of one special woman.

To escape her bad marriage, a fearful young Martha finds shelter with the help of her only friend. As time goes by, the friendship of Shirley fades, leaving a naïve Martha struggling to deal with the enormity of change in her life and an unexpected betrayal.

Her inspiring personal beliefs, compassion and loyalties bring joy and new friends, along with the perils of devious strangers. Being the change she wished to be was never going to be easy.

Martha soon discovers that every new venture comes with a price. And the only thing over which she has control, is herself.

About the Author

Written by South Australian author Pam Warner. It makes her happy to think up characters, names and plots and see others enjoying the finished result. With a lifetime of discovery and ever the optimist, she uses light-hearted novels as a way of sharing everybody’s need to feel loved, and because in these uncertain times, writing fiction allows her to go into a world that she has control over. And isn’t that what it’s all about?
