Elaine Wilton

This interview with Elaine captures Austinmer from the perspective of a local girl born and raised in Coledale who married and went to live in Austinmer in 1958. She recalls the experience of building a new home under the brooding escarpment, of raising her sons, of the routines of everyday life with the beach and the Austinmer Surf Life Saving Club playing a central role. Elaine still lives in Austinmer.
