Awards, Bequests and a new Op's Chair

The Trust received a generous bequest in the will of the late William (Bill) Couper. Bill often helped Dave Edwards and would be available with a willing pair of hands when needed. Later in his life he was not to be able to help us on work days due to failing health. This year we will be reviewing the strategic plans of the Trust. Gavin Cherrie has taken over the Ops chair position with a new structure in place for our Operations volunteers. We were runners up in the NZ Community of the Year awards. See below for more details.
