Community rallies for Wayne

MARYBOROUGH man Wayne Peatey started to show signs of recovery in the Royal Brisbane Hospital’s intensive care unit this week.

Mr Peatey, leader of the Baddow Scouts, has been fighting for his life since falling critically ill on his return from the national scout jamboree on January 15.

It was believed his condition could have been set off by a stomach bug.

Friends, family and local business people have been gathering at the Peateys’ Tinana home over the past couple of weekends, sprucing up their garden and pool.

“The gardens look wonderful and the pool has been drained, cleaned and refilled,” said family friend Kathy Hodges.

“We would like to give a huge thank-you to all the wonderful people and businesses who donated items and their precious time helping Wayne and Maralin.”
