Its official! Pommy Petes now Aussie Pete

Pommy Pete contemplates his new identity.

Lismore hair stylist Pommy Pete is wondering whether he needs to consider a name change after taking the plunge and joining 12,500 people across the country who will mark Australia Day tomorrow by becoming citizens.

After swearing his allegiance to Australia at Lismore City Hall tomorrow, he plans to celebrate with his mates in true Aussie style with a barbie and a cricket match.

Originally from Manchester, Pete Crowley had been visiting Australia since he was 18 and finally settled on the North Coast twelve years ago.

He met Pop Johnson soon after, and came to work for him at his eclectic Lismore salon P.O.P Hair in the Star Court Arcade, where he has worked ever since and which he has subsequently taken over.

Lismore has been very good to me, as has Australia, and it is my honour to be here. said Pete.

After (Englands performance in) the cricket I was so embarrassed I thought Id better become an Australian citizen.
