Blueberries keep Bob on the go

BOB Tompson, of Kungala, enjoys taking a leisurely drive into South Grafton to play bowls, but only when it isn't blueberry season.

He has lived in Kungala for around four and a half years and works as a driver and also collects blueberries during the season.

“I love the weather around here, especially out at home, the breeze is sensational,” Bob said of the Clarence Valley.

He appreciates the laid-back lifestyle in our part of the world, however, he thinks that one of our assets is under-used - that is the mighty Clarence River.

“One of the most viable and best assets is this part of the Clarence River,” he said.

“If anywhere else, you would not be able to move for the crowds,” Bob said.

Before he devoted his time to lawn bowls and blueberry farming, he was a builder and a member of the Australian Army Reserve, where he worked as a cook and a clerk.
