84, Eliza Purton
Phil won first place in a chopping competition at Spreyton and competed across Australia in the late 1970’s.
“My first win was in Waratah in the 1940’s I got fined for not wearing white trousers. I remember going to Adelaide once with two others – we went out and painted the town. Our hostess said ‘out the door, turn left and go down 4-5 houses and tell me about it in the morning’. A good time was had by all.”
