Volunteer of the Month
Ann Wills from Alexandra is our Volunteer of the month for March 2014.
Ann has been involved with Keep Alexandra Clyde Beautiful for nine years now and in that time as been a tireless and hard working committee member. Ann has been the Secretary for a number of this years and has now decided to take on the role of Chair of the group effective beginning of March 2014.
Ann is one of those ladies who has amazing vision for the branch. She designed a fabulous KNZB and KACB float that was constructed for the Blossom Festival and was nothing short of outstanding. Over the last two years she has lead the group in the recent upgrade of the Kamaka Walkway in Alexandra and this in itself has involved a huge amount of planning, fund raising, meetings and organise along with planting working bees. And the Kamaka Walkway also came Runner Up in the Fonterra Environmental Awards for 2013. Ann did a tremendous amount of work on the Alexandra Rail Trail Picnic area which was developed in association with DOC.
Ann can always be relied upon for any extra work or planting that needs to be done – she just answers with a yes and a smile and always turns up.
Ann is an inspirational person who has great ideas and always follows them through – and is in full time employment as well. She is an inspiration to the team here at Keep Alexandra Clyde which is why we have put her up for this NZ Couriers KNZB Award.
