Members of the Friends have re-elected their hardworking committee at yesterday’s AGM. These people will be steering us through the next year:
- President: Garry Long
- Vice-president: Les Lewis
- General secretary: Colin Campbell
- Treasurer: Colin Campbell
- Minutes secretary: Jill Russell
The Friends also have a five sub-committees or action teams:
All work and no play makes everyone dull – this team plans fun social outings and activities
Hands-on, on the ground, getting things done team – they do things like recreate platforms and old railway infrastructure, source reproduction station signs and outdoor furniture for recreation reserves.
Getting the word out team – website, social media, posters, flyers, submissions, reports.
- History research
Finding the stories behind the old railway – this team talks to people who remember it, digs out old photos, newspaper reports and documents.
- Strategic planning
The where-to-from-here team – who do we need to talk to, lobby, engage with?
All the teams are open to new members, so if you’d like to give a couple of hours a week in an area that interests you or in which you have skills and experience, we’ll be reviewing the teams at our next meeting on 15 January 2014.
