Jan '08
Wagin Woolorama has named 21 year old Wagin girl, Londa Finlayson as its Rural Ambassador for 2008. Londa who was born and bred in Wagin is married with a five month old baby son and works as the Assistant Manager of the Commonwealth Bank in Narrogin.

Woolorama Media/Public Relations spokesman, Pat Harding said Londa would be a tremendous asset as Rural Ambassador.

“She is extremely articulate, vibrant and outgoing and is one of the most confident 21 year old's I have encountered. I believe she has the capacity to represent Western Australia following the state final later this year”.

Londa's parents, Wayne and Wicki Hegarty have been long time residents of Wagin and have run a successful shearing company. She married her husband Troy, a New Zealander in October 2006 and her son Logan was born in August 2007.

She attended Wagin District High School up to Year 10, where she was Vice Captain, finishing years 11 & 12 at the Narrogin Senior High School.

Londa has had practical experience in rural life working part time as a shed hand and then winning the novice section in the wool handling competition at Woolorama in 2005.

After leaving school she spent 12 months as a Trainee at the Shire of Wagin, then 9 months with the Town of Narrogin before joining the Commonwealth Bank in Narrogin, where she is now the Assistant Manager.

Londa has been actively involved in sport in Wagin taking up the role of Junior Coordinatorfor the Wagin Netball Club, coaching, umpiring, playing and affiliating.

In 2004 she was awarded an Alcoa Sport Scholarship for coaching and given $1,000 to help further her experience and knowledge of netball through courses, carnivals and clinics.

“Since I was a little girl it was always my dream to represent Woolorama and wear the maroon sash, now that I have that wonderful opportunity I will represent the Wagin community with pride and determination”, she said.
