Woy Woy postmaster retires after 35-year career
Woy Woy postmaster Mr David Camden will retire on May 24 after 35 years with Australia Post.
He has spent 25 of those years as postmaster of Woy Woy Post Office.
"I will miss my staff and customers but one thing I am looking forward to in my retirement is not getting up every morning at some unearthly hour."
Mr Camden said: "There are lots of opportunities that this job really provides and I'd encourage anyone to apply for a job like this.
"I started not as a postmaster, but I was given an opportunity in my career to move to the Woy Woy Post Office and manage as well as be a part of its set up and success.
"There have been lots of memorable moments and it's been great and one hell of a ride, but I wouldn't miss it for the world."
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said she was grateful to the man behind deliveries on the Peninsula for his many years of continued service.
"To have someone as invested as Mr Camden is in ensuring all of us keep up-to-date with our communications and parcels is absolutely wonderful.
"I think especially, at a time like this, we really can recognise the difference Postmaster Camden has made in our lives on the Peninsula and it's such an honour to have someone as dedicated as him working hard for our community.
"Most of us move from job to job all the time.
"It's so brilliant to see how Postmaster Camden has invested his time and love into providing for our community in the best way he knows how to and it's so rare to see someone these days have such a successful and longstanding career."
