editor's letter

As the nation reeled from the shock of the tragic suicide of 14-year-old Amy (Dolly) Everett, Springsure locals Shannon Bleakley, her partner, Dan Roberts, and a team of 200 volunteers jumped into action and organised a fundraising Doin’ It for Dolly rodeo. More than 6000 people converged on the little town, population 1100, for the event and, at the end of the day, they raised more than $175,000 for the Dolly’s Dream Foundation, established by Dolly’s family and friends to combat bullying in all its forms. If you’re as inspired by this achievement as I am, you can lend your support to the foundation by visiting facebook.com/dollysdreamaustralia.

Pinterest, his go-to for inspiration, reveals expertly curated folders on architecture and design, seamlessly co-existing with pins on rugby and cars. His large farmer’s hands swipe, and the fact that he even has a Pinterest account speaks volumes. “My mother had a beautiful eye for design and style,” he reflects. “It’s quite amazing, you never forget those things that were ingrained into your childhood.”Nestled in a leafy local street, Andrew and his wife, Barbara, have restored one of the town’s most stately properties, the type passers-by crane their necks at in anticipation of a glimpse beyond the perfectly manicured hedges and…
