Lucie Peart

Lucie is the managing editor of local newspaper ‘The Gilgandra Weekly’. She also participated in the 2015 Coo-ee March Re-enactment in the role of media liaison. Lucie grew up in Canberra and moved to Gilgandra two years ago with her husband, who comes from a local farming family. Through her occupation and keen community interest she has watched and participated in many community events marking the centenary of such a historically significant event – the Coo-ee March. Her media liaison role also included documenting the march for print media, radio and television and collecting video and photographic ‘evidence’. This insight into the march re-enactment will become invaluable to its ongoing documentation for the future generations of Gilgandra. Lucie has a background in advertising and media communications, is a volunteer board member on the Gilgandra & District Community Bank (Bendigo Bank) and is the 2016 Gilgandra Young Citizen of the Year.
