Eric, an experienced JP, is eager to serve the community, providing essential services free of charge.

Retiring three years ago and moving to the district from Canberra after a long career with the Department of Defence, the community-minded Eric devotes much of his spare time toward volunteering.

In addition to his volunteer work as a JP, Eric assists the residents at Illawong Retirement Village, Nambucca Heads, with issues they may be having with IT, smartphones and technical equipment.

News Of The Area asked Eric why he chose the Mid North Coast to set up home.

“A good friend of mine retired to Valla Beach and we came to visit him a few times and found the climate to be great, it was nice and close to services and the people were very friendly.

“We just loved it here so decided to make it permanent.”

The addition of Eric’s service will complement the existing JP service provided by Les McMahon at the Nambucca Plaza every Wednesday from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm.

Together, Eric and Les aim to ensure that residents have convenient access to JP services each week.

JPs play an important role in the community, offering their time and expertise free of charge.

Their services include witnessing signatures, certifying true copies of documents, and assisting with statutory declarations.
