The Shire of Augusta Margaret River’s holiday parks and camping ground have undergone a changing of the guard, with long-time manager Hettie Enderes phasing into retirement and Megan Ferris returning to the region to take up her post.
Ms Enderes has a long history with the parks, having started managing Turner Holiday Park in 2003 with her husband Gary before later going on to take over Flinders Bay Holiday Park and the Alexandra Bridge Campground.
Though more than just a job, Ms Enderes’ experiences have helped forge lifelong memories.
“Our children Joella and Daniel – then 11 and 9 – grew up on the park and in Augusta and have fond memories of their time,” she said.
“We can’t think of a better place for kids to spend time, now and then, with the river, ocean and bush at their doorstep.
“The same can be said for families coming to visit on holidays.”
Even though Ms Enderes said she could “write a book about all that happened over these past 18 years on the parks”, her focus will be shifting to other passions, like artwork, gardening and travel.
Filling Ms Enderes’ big shoes will be Megan Ferris, who has decades of experience managing parks and said this new role felt like coming “home”.
“It is with great pleasure and a good dose of nostalgia that I take on the role of Holiday Parks Manager in beautiful Augusta,” she said.
“The very first holiday park I managed was in Augusta some 20 years ago so to come home and work for the Shire of Augusta Margaret River is just a wonderful turn of events.
“Everyone has made both myself and my daughter Rori feel extremely welcome and we look forward to being a part of the community.”
Ms Enderes is gradually phasing into retirement through flexible working arrangements and will continue working closely with Ms Ferris to ensure a smooth handover.
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River extends a big thank you to Ms Enderes for her service and a warm welcome to Ms Ferris.
