Tony Heat owned and operated a business called Carter Sewell in Sydney for many years and was always an industry stalwart.
He was among the first to join VASA and was a member of the VASA board from the beginning. Tony could always be relied on to turn up to meetings, at his own expense, wherever they were and he was a great supporter of standards in the industry.
In June 2003, Tony and his Wendy packed up and moved to the Hunter Valley, where they established The Old Mill B & B. The Board of Directors conferred first life membership on Tony for his enthusiasm and dedication to the industry.
