LANGWARRIN POSTIE REACHES BIG MILESTONE

Local Langwarrin postie Stewart Farmer has clocked up 20 years as a local postie, including the last 16 years in Langwarrin.

Federal Member for Dunkley Peta Murphy MP phoned Stewart to congratulate him on 20 years of service in the local community.

“Many locals will know Stewart’s familiar face and friendly demeanour, he has made a real impact in our community” Ms Murphy said.

“Stewart told me the best part of being a postie is making people happy - like when kids run out to the mailbox and call out ‘Hi Mr Postie!’”

“I asked him what his best stories were from his time serving the community. Of course he’s been chased by dogs. Apparently he’s been greeted at the door more than once by customers who struggled to keep control of the towel wrapped around them. And back in the day his Christmas run ended with a bike full of beer from grateful locals.”

The community also congratulated Stewart with almost 850 likes on Facebook and many messages of thanks.
