CHRIS Tobin represents the community spirit for which Bathurst is so famous. She came to Bathurst with her parents – a&nbsp;Greek immigrant&nbsp;father and Australian mother -&nbsp;when she was just a couple of weeks old. In the early 1950s, her dad opened Andy's Fish Shop in Keppel Street. Chris remembers her dad pushing her up and down Keppel Street in a little toy car. An only child, she was pretty much raised by her grandparents, attending St Philomena's and St Mary's College. "Life in Bathurst in those days was plain and simple," she said. "You didn't need money to have a good time, you could go to town and leave the windows wide open, and it was safe to walk to school.” When she was considered old enough to go to the eight o'clock movie screening at the city picture theatre, Chris thought she had it made. "It was a carefree childhood," she said. Her first job was with a mixed business in Keppel Street. "My first pay cheque&nbsp;was six pounds ten. I was in heaven," she said.&nbsp;"I stayed in that job until I got married." Chris has been married to Bryan Tobin for 47 years, and they have four kids. "I'm very content with my life," she said. She said she has had one of the best part-time jobs in the world, as a tour guide at the Bathurst Goldfields,&nbsp;for the past 15 years. "I take the kids on tours around the goldfields, telling them about the gold rush. It's very hands on,” she said.&nbsp;"Schools come from all over NSW to visit. "My boss Debbie Campbell is wonderful when it comes to her staff. I feel good about going to work. "We cook damper, have sack races and horseshoe throws.&nbsp;We have so much fun and the kids make me feel young." Chris is very well known in the community for her 31 years of volunteering&nbsp;at St Stanislaus’ College, which she&nbsp;said is her second home. She is the co-ordinator of the Stannies Fair each year, co-ordinates the rugby barbecues during rugby season and&nbsp;is the presiding officer for the HSC every year. "I really love that," she said. "They are so good to me at Stannies. When the boys thank you for all you have done it makes you feel good. "When I go there I feel like I've come home. Dr [Anne] Wenham [head of college] makes me feel so welcome and involves me in everything. "All the boarding families have kept in touch. We have stayed friends and get together when we can.” She said she is also very involved with whatever happens to be going on at the Cathedral of St Michael and St John, has served on the Parish Council and was a catechist around the schools for many years. "My grandparents instilled the Catholic religion in me," she said.&nbsp;"I've always had a role in the Church." You would not think there would be much time left over for other activities, however, Chris has&nbsp;also presented the&nbsp;Country Music Club&nbsp;on community radio station 2MCE FM from 2pm-5pm on Sundays&nbsp;for&nbsp;14 years. She was trained in how to produce her own show by Alf Halpin many years ago. "I love to sit in front of that panel and know I can handle everything myself," she said.&nbsp; "In my three hours on air I get so many calls. People call in from all over the Central West. "I tend to play the old country songs, the sad ones, the ones that tell a story. "I love music. I particularly love 60s music, but I love country music too.” She loves her line dancing too and has been involved with the Bathurst Country Music Club for 20 years.&nbsp;Chris is currently the social director and publicity officer. "They won't let me sing or anything though - I don't know why," she grinned.
