Committee Member SIRA

I welcome this opportunity to serve on the SIRA committee as it deals with a wide range of island issues including the ongoing ones: Church Point parking, sewerage, roads and maintaining the community’s unique lifestyle.
A full-time resident now after moving into the family holiday home four years go, I have involved myself with Bushcare and Fire Brigade fund-raising and making new friends, not a lot I agree, so this is a chance to extend my service to my fellow Islanders.
In my seventies and a golf buggy driver, I also hope we can resolve the criticisms which are bubbling to the surface about these lifesavers.
