Another piece of local history has been published – author Ruby M Feros, daughter of George Feros, has just penned a book about her father, entitled George: his passion.

George was a well regarded identity who worked tirelessly raising money to start Byron Bay’s first aged care hostel.

First known as a businessman, George later became recognised as the fundraising man who would ring his ‘famous’ bell as he patrolled the street in bare feet.

Member for Richmond, Justine Elliot, joined supporters on Friday 20th may, 2011, to celebrate the launch of the book.
