Currently the catering manager, Mrs Watson kick-started her career at the university as a chef in February 1987. But on Friday her journey at the university will come to an end, as Mrs Watson takes off her apron for the last time. She says spending more time with family and her husband of more than 40 years, Trevor, is behind the decision. “Well 31 years is a long time and it’s time to move on and be with family, I’ve got five grandchildren,” Mrs Watson said. She plans to have three months off “doing nothing” before deciding what her next move is. Mrs Watson has “really, really enjoyed” her time at the university and says she will miss the students and staff. •Turn to page 4 • By Julia Evans THE LINWOOD-Central- Heathcote Community Board has made a rare move in a bid to keep a controversial liquor store from opening in Phillipstown. The board has been granted leave by the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority so it can be involved in the appeal of a decision that declined a Liquorland application for an off-licence on Ferry Rd. Chairwoman Sally Buck said it was “probably” a rare move that the board received independent legal advice and sought leave to fight the appeal. She said it was not normal for boards to seek leave, but it was what the residents were calling for. “But we’re doing a good job, I think, and listening to what our community wants. It’s clear they don’t want another bottle store.” Ms Buck said it would be “interesting” to see her board’s move set a precedent for other boards to lobby against liquor outlets in their community. •Turn to page 5 Location and Potential 1/107 Holly Road, St Albans | Listing Number: BE193077 ARTISTS IMPRESSION OF HOW ROOMS COULD LOOK FURNISHED 2 1 1 1 1 1 Your agent, Your home, Your future LICENSED SALES CONSULTANT REAA 2008 Ok we know you’ve heard it all before - surprise package, bonus features... yeah, yeah!
