Since moving to Kaiapoi 15 years ago, I volunteered for two of the emergency service organisations for around 9years each.

Three years ago I created a website that promotes the idea of people Supporting, Shopping and Eating Local Kaiapoi.

Combined with the facebook page its the go to place for all of whats happening in Kaiapoi.. there are over 500 Kaiapoi businesses on that site

Over 2 years ago I was asked by Council to create the Kaiapoi Food Forest on Cass Street… from a bare piece of land 2 years ago…we have had over 1800 trees and plants donated by the community. I have created an environment where we are Growing Food – Growing community, creating a charitable trust with some out standing volunteers.

I am a trustee for You Me We Us who put on events around the district, ie Waitangi Day, lantern Festival, Pop Up Cinemas, Spring Festival, Kane Shield Swimming Comp etc etc

I assist when I can at “Art on the Quay” Kaiapoi’s premium art gallery at the library.
