The end of an era

Post Office, Beechwood NSW

Meet Esme Waldron.

An iconic character in the little village of Beechwood, she ran the local post office with her husband for 23 years until she retired in 2016.

The locals will tell you that since her departure, the post office has never looked so tidy! They’ll also tell you what a dear lady she is as they fondly reminisce. What they won’t tell you is that for them, collecting the mail was only ever an excuse to call in for a chat with Esme.

This job is about meeting people and being part of a community – Esme Waldron
