Episode 6: Jim Coe


Jim Coe has lived all his life in Waiuku and for almost all his life he has been involved in surf life saving. He spends almost every weekend at the surf club at Kariotahi Beach. He devotes much of his time on guard; training younger people, and helping a conservation drive to save the beach front. Jim also played representative rugby for Waiuku, the Counties and was also a Maori All Black. During his time in rugby he was described as a mentor to other players - an attribute not often seen in players at that level. And while working at the Steel Mill his mentoring skills have come and helped to keep the division he works in stay in operation.

Jim and his wife Judith have two young children - Tara and Aaron. So when our landscape designer Richard Greenwood came up with a design for a swimming pool he was thinking about the whole family. The pool, with a liner was easy to install. A fence was built around it, and large palms were situated along the boundary fence. And finally a barbecue area was built at the back door. And Jim, who thought the only change that was going to happen was the back shed was going to be moved, was stunned by the transformation and within minutes the children were already in the pool.
