Have a coffee with... Rotary Club president Bevan Rose

WE have a coffee and chat with some of Gladstone's familiar faces.

Name: Bevan Rose, president of the Rotary Club of Gladstone Inc.

Years lived in Gladstone and suburb: I was born and bred here (a true local) and my wife Kerry and I live in Seaview Heights.

On a rainy Sunday afternoon you can find me watching a good movie.

If I were to travel the world I would go to Italy. I lived in Europe for a long time and Italy was my favourite place.

My favourite thing to do in Gladstone is helping out in the community.

I can't remember the last time I went out fishing.

When I leave the Nightowl car park I turn left, I always follow that rule.

I would consider a lady named Mary Goodwin to be my hero because when I was in my teens she told me to follow my dreams, so I travelled the world and studied at the Cordon Bleu in London.

My favourite place to have a coffee is Muffin Break.

When I feel like splurging, I go on an overseas trip every year.

My look-a-like Brad Pitt would play me in a movie about my life.

My first order of business as newly elected PM would be health care.
