  • Listen To Older Voices: Grif Ward - Part 1

    Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced Rob Greaves for Wesley Mission Victoria and podcast through the Toorak Times.

    Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views & opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principal of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.



    Born in Melbourne during the Great Depression of the 1930ís, eighty four year old Grif Ward starts his story from his earliest memories at the age of four. As Grif talks of his parents, particularly his father, we begin to get a glimpse into Grifís future as he inherited many of his father traits and skills. A methodical man his storytelling ability gives us the listener an opportunity to really tune into the activities and lifestyles of generations now long past.

    We follow his story through Technical College and into his first job in local government engineering. Grif has a passion for natural history and exploration and these loves permeate his life and his story.
