Margaret Ganly, a long term resident of Torquay celebrated a special Birthday in July when she turned 100.
Margaret, a descendant of one of our earliest settlers William Pride is a pretty amazing lady and was born just after the Gallipoli invasion !!! I doubt there is anyone who has seen more change in our town than Margaret. Living in the region all her life she spent almost all her summers as a child with her grandparents and remembers being at the beach all day long. Her love of ocean swimming was born early and until quite recently she swam at the front beach regularly.
Margaret Ganly lives in, and is wonderful custodian, of the Scammell house and is a wonderful reference point for us on the history and stories of the Scammell.
