William's got the community front and centre

WILLIAM Callaway loves the arts.

His own acting portfolio includes the blacksmith in Oscar and Lucinda.

His tractor was even in Fields of Fire.

That's why deciding to use his skills as an engraver to fit out the Pelican Playhouse with new signs was an easy choice.

"I love helping the community," Mr Callaway said.

"And I think there are a lot of creative people in South Grafton so the Pelican Playhouse is doing a great thing.

"I want people to express themselves through art and for young people to have a place where they won't get square eyes."

Mr Callaway owns the Engraving Emporium on Spring St, South Grafton.

"I'm in a niche market," he said.

"When I first started in engineering we used to make everything, from steam trains to carriages."

Mr Callaway used to work at the Harwood Slipway as a fitter and turner.

You have probably seen him riding his motorbike with dog Molly in the sidecar.

"I like doing what I'm doing now," he said.

"It lets you be creative.

"It also gives me a chance to help the community, another thing that I love doing."
