Andy: “The Club is good for everyone. They come out, the men play cards and backgammon (and) the women play bingo and talk about how they look after their grandchildren. “Every week different ladies prepare the coffee, salads, vino. Every week (it is) something different, grilled fish and chips with salad is the favourite.”
Chris: “I love this club. We help elderly people. I love this job. (We) do everything... to keep everyone happy. I love the people. We are all together, one family.”
How did you come to live in Port Melbourne?
Andy: “When I come to Australia, I went to Dandenong. I met my wife Angela in Port Melbourne and then I moved here.”
Chris: “I came to Port in 1962 with my wife and two children. We lived at my sisters for 9 months and then we buy a little house. I first worked at a mineral factory in Ingles Street and then for 20 something years in the export department at Kraft. My wife worked at Swallows biscuit factory for 17 years.
Love and dreams:
Chris: “Polly and I have been 52 years together and we are still in love. .”We have 22 in my family now, with one great-grand-boy, our little Tommy. Our dream comes true because of beautiful Australia
