WONTHAGGI couple Joan and Stuart Dun-
lop have celebrated their 65th wedding an-
The couple met on a blind date when Stu-
art was serving in the Air Force.
The two lived in east Melbourne for 21 years,
before moving to Collingwood and then ulti-
mately settling in Wonthaggi in 1957, where
they’ve lived in the same house ever since.
After serving in the Air Force, Stuart
worked in the building industry and before
retiring he caught crayfish.
While he has officially retired, you can of-
ten find him working on a project at home.
And if you’ve been to a local theatre pro-
duction in the past few decades, it’s likely
some of the accessories were made by Joan,
who you can often find knitting or sewing.
Reflecting back on 65 years, Joan said
they’ve overcome a lot of hurdles.
“I t doesn’t seem like 65 years, the time
goes so quickly, ” Joan said.
They celebrated the milestone with their
daughter Debbie on Wednesday, May 10.

BASS Coast Health (BCH) celebrated Inter-
national Day of the Midwife a little bit more
proudly than usual this year with the news that
its very own Midwifery student Francine Warren
(or Franny as she is known to BCH) was award-
ed the Gippsland Australian College (ACM) of
Midwives Student of the Year Award.
The nominations for the annual award are
peer based and Franny’s BCH Midwifery col-
leagues who nominated her were thrilled with
her achievement, which was announced at the
Gippsland ACM Ball recently.
Franny commenced her Graduate Diploma of
Midwifery at Federation University and BCH in
She was the inaugural participant in a new
student midwife program where Franny was in-
cluded in the roster as a registered nurse pro-
viding postnatal care.
The nomination noted that Franny had man-
aged to complete all of her university work to
an exceptional standard whilst working hard to
achieve her numbers (births, follow throughs,
receptions, antenatal care and postnatal
checks) within the first year.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the rea-
son that she has worked so hard is that she
was also pregnant with her third child and gave
birth in December - three weeks after finishing
Franny has demonstrated how very well the
paid employment model can work in a small
facility in the last year.
She has become a valued member of the team
and all the women who have been lucky enough
to be looked after by Franny cannot talk highly
enough of her.
Her colleagues believe there is no doubt that
Franny will be an excellent midwife.
While International Day of the Midwife is a
day where Midwives are particularly celebrated
every year at BCH, CEO Jan Child said Fran-
ny’s award gave the day even more meaning for
“We couldn’t have asked for more exciting, or
fitting, news on this special day.”
BCH midwives celebrated a special Inter-
national Day of the Midwife this year. Shown
