Betty Forbes was presented with a Life Membership for the Friends, in recognition of her exceptional support over an extended period of time.
We also said goodbye to our resigning President, Pippa Moodie. Pippa has been a member of the Friends for over 16 years, a member of the Growing Friends for 16 years, including as Chair of the Nursery Committee for many years.
Pippa joined the Management Committee in 2012 and was Vice President, and then President of the Friends for the last 3 years. Pippa was also made a Life Member of the Friends in 2015.
During this time, Pippa has had an enormous impact on the Friends, working hard in the Nursery, at Plant Sales, Skyworks, and much more. As President, Pippa has forged close working relationships with the Park and our sponsors such as Lotterywest, as well as driving significant projects including the new Volunteer Hub, Wanju Marr.
Pippa has kindly agreed to serve on the Management Committee for a further year to assist the incoming President in making the transition from Management Committee member to President. Her role will be akin to that of an immediate past president. She has also agreed to continue her involvement with the Volunteer Hub Administrative Committee which she has chaired since its formation earlier this year.
Thank you Pippa for your endless support for the great work of the Friends.
