Bishop John Parkes
I am proud to serve on the St. John’s Village Board, which has an important role in ensuring that the level of care provided at St. John’s Village is best practice, whilst also encouraging innovation and efficiency throughout the organisation. I bring to the Board a background in the surveying and development industry, along with many years experience on other boards of governance.
I am delighted to have this opportunity to contribute to the St. John’s Village community by joining the Board of Governance. I bring to the board significant healthcare experience in both hospital and community settings; most recently in the specialty field of infection prevention and control.
Dr Alex Traill has worked in general practice in Wangaratta for 20 years and the majority of his work now involves the care of elderly members of the community. He believes his knowledge and understanding of the health care needs of elderly people contributes to the residents of St. John’s Village.

After moving to Wangaratta in July 2014 Dean Ken Goodger deems it a privilege to have been asked to join the Board of St. John’s Village. He hopes his experience in aged care ministry can contribute to the life of St. John’s Village in its continuing role to provide excellent care to residents and a supportive, encouraging workplace for staff.

I am a retired lawyer who is actively involved with the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta. I am a trustee of the Diocese, director and warden of the Holy Trinity Cathedral parish, a member of the Cathedral College school council and member of the Bishop-in-Council. I enjoy contributing to the community though my involvement on the St. John’s Village board.
I have been a board member for six years and bring to the position 40 years experience in the financial sector as both a banker and accountant. I have contributed to my community as a member of service clubs for 25 years. I believe that I can use this background experience to assist the aged in our community through membership of the board of St. John’s Village.
I first joined the St. John’s Village board in 1997, eventually taking on the role of chairman for eight years. These were among the most rewarding years of my life, working with dedicated groups of board members and senior management. This has continued with my ongoing role as a board member. I have a great love for the village and a determination to see that it continues the very highest standards of aged care services.
