Interview with Jean Kittson

Comedian, writer, and social commentator Jean Kittson has the ability to distil complex ideas into commonsense. Jean is one of the national treasures in conversation with Mandy Nolan and Fiona O’Loughlin at No Eggs for Breakfast, a comedic chat themed around life beyond fertility! It seemed remiss not to ask Ms Kittson on her take on the debacle that is federal politics and gender equity.

Rotary Downunder Baton handed over at Byron Bay

The Rotary Club of Byron Bay recently took the Rotary Downunder Baton to the most easterly point of Australia as part of its national journey. As well as being the national celebration of one hundred years of service by Rotary in Australia, the theme for the centenary is 'Rotary says no to domestic violence'.

I wonder if you would help me in my family tree research by publishing the following in your letters page:

I am trying to trace Jean Pierre Prat, whose last known contact address was c/o Post Office, Mullumbimby, NSW 2482

This address comes from the last will of Leo Gregory Costelloe, my uncle, who died in London, England, on 24 August 1982, where Jean Pierre is named as the main beneficiary of his estate should Leo’s sister, Marie Therese Costelloe, not have survived, which indeed proved to be the case

If anyone has any knowledge of Jean Pierre Prat I would be most grateful if they would, in the first instance, contact me at my following email address: [email protected]

Many thanks.

Mike Costelloe. Scarborough, North Yorkshire
