What our community says about Ken.
University of the Third Age (U3A) Lesmurdie Group, Lesmurdie
"We are lucky to have Ken as our local member. He has such a broad knowledge base on a range of topics and has opened our eyes to the possibilities and opportunities available to older Australians and those in Aged Care. He understands the problems facing every day people and he does his best to fix those problems and tries to look after those people in our community that really need help. He makes time for us and has his finger on the pulse and that is something we haven’t had before in Hasluck."
Medjugorje Centre, Swan View
"I called on Ken to help me with introductions to a variety of Aboriginal Corporations, so that I could get them to contribute to the operating costs of the Medjugorje Centre’s Moorditj Bus project. Ken did that magnificently, as the ones I approached were very positive and did contribute, because of Ken’s endorsement of the project. Ken has also given me a really well worded letter of support I can use when approaching other possible contributors. The Moorditj Bus is a very recent procurement by Medjugorje Centre, but is already taking Moorditj Noongar Community College students to take part in basketball competitions at Warwick Stadium after school Fridays. The students love this and could not attend otherwise due lack of transport."
Geoff Francis, Mundaring
"I want to say a personal THANK YOU to Ken and Julie Bishop for making the effort to visit and speak in Mundaring, our near utopian shire in the hills. Both did an excellent job, especially Julie in answering questions. The feedback I gained from other attendees was very positive."
President of the Swan View Agricultural and Arts Society (Inc)
"The Swan View Agricultural and Arts Society (Inc) has been sponsored, supported and assisted by Ken Wyatt and his staff with grant applications, grants, photo copying and paper and also physical and meeting support. This has been of great assistance to our society especially at a time when our society looked like becoming redundant. Support by all concerned has helped our society to rejuvenate to a point where at the 2017 Swan View Show we had approximately 5000 community members in attendance.
Ken and staff have been of great assistance to the show committee."

Thank you and your support team for coming along and joining in our day."
