David and Wendy Webster - Winton Achievers of the Year
David and Wendy Webster are long standing Winton identities. David and Wendy participate and volunteer in nearly every aspect of life in Winton.
They both give freely of their time, provide financial support, ‘know how’ and equipment in support of their community.

un-marked graves; sourced funding and built a large rotunda, installed signage relating to history and added a toilet and outdoor seating to the facilities.
In addition to the usual record keeping of a Cemetery, Wendy has compiled a book with all the details of the persons buried in Winton, their family and local connections to preserve our history and ensure there is a record for the future.
