Piers Verstegan - Guest Speaker at 2019 AGM

 PIERS VERSTEGAN  - DIRECTOR OF CONSERVATION COUNCIL was our GUEST SPEAKER  at the  AGM on 20th March at RSL Hall.

He presented an overview of Conservation Council activities and focuses with an accompanying slideshow.  His depth of knowledge and passion for conservation was in evidence and all who were in attendance were treated to a very special speech.

Outgoing President Tony Fowler gave a summary of the year's activity. It was obvious that Tony had a very busy NRPG year. We need to multiply that 30 times for every year he has been involved in the Executive so we understand entirely why he wishes to stand down. Gratitude for his unwavering service to preserving our natural environment for so many years cannot be under-stated. Well done and thank you Tony.  President's report is here AGM_2019_President_report.pdf
