Yamba is Faith's very own heaven

SINCE moving from the Philippines four months ago, Faith Richards thinks she has found her slice of paradise at Yamba.

After holidaying at Yamba for three months in 2009, Mrs Richards moved to Australia to live in the Clarence Valley in December and married the Daily Examiner fishing columnist Dick in January.

She said the life most Australians take for granted is in stark contrast to how most people in the Phillippines live.

“The food and the climate here are great,” she said.

“The education, employment prospects, the environment and health care are better in Australia.”

Mrs Richards said she has regular get togethers with more than a dozen Philippine women she had met since moving to the Clarence Valley.

“I have a lot of friends here in the Clarence Valley,” she said.

“I have joined the community choir run by Sister Anne Gallagher at Maclean and have met nice people through the choir who are very friendly.”
