AUNTY LIL: Pride in Cherborug Brandon Livesay

CHERBOURG'S Aunty Lillian Gray believes a brawl that happened on April 19 does not reflect the community she knows and loves.  

She says Cherbourg has much to be proud of and isn't a bad place.

 "I am certainly really disappointed (about the brawl) ... We have so many things to be proud of in Cherbourg, all the good sport people that come from here," Aunty Lil said. 

 "We have the Ration Shed, which has our history, what's going on today, and our future for our children."  

"Whenever I go down (to the Ration Shed), I get tears in my eyes because I'm so proud of it."

 She wants the community to be full of pride in how far it has come and all the facilities Cherbourg has.

 "We have a TAFE, our aged-care home, hospital, radio station, we have a cafe, we have so much that we didn't have before," Aunty Lil said.  

"I'm proud to live in Cherbourg."
