Phil Colver

A former islands’ resident has been making the headlines down under where he now lives.

Phil Colver and his wife Gretchen are proud parents of the first baby born in a New South Wales public hospital in 2012.

Their son Cas, who weighed in at just over 7lb, was born in the Manley District hospital in Sydney at 12:12am on New Years Day morning.

The birth has been featured in Australian newspapers and on their state broadcaster, ABC.

Phil worked here as a boatman, at Juliet’s Garden and the Star Castle before leaving Scilly in 2007.
