Linda Mackenzie

Born in South Africa in the previous century……I had a very happy childhood having been to 10 schools in my life as my father was transferred all over Zimbabwe and South Africa.  This taught me confidence and how to adjust!!   I have travelled to many wonderful places in this world.   15 years ago Rob and I decided to make a “big change” in our lives and came to Melbourne.   We left our adult children behind and hoped they would follow….to date…nope!   Have been involved with Rotary here in Melbourne as well as Kids Hope Aus.    I work in Sales here in Melbourne and have done that most of my life.

We joined St. Margaret’s just before Covid and have made some wonderful friends and enjoy our worship here.   I look forward to learning more and getting involved with the community here in Eltham.
