Four new Life Members to Landcare NSW Honour Roll
Landcare NSW welcomed four new Honorary Life Members recently when their AGM was held in Sydney.
Praising their dedication to the movement, role in the development of Landcare NSW and the NSW Landcare movement and guiding the direction of all levels of Landcare, Landcare NSW Chair Steph Cameron said she was pleased to be able to honour their achievements.
“These four individuals have ensured that Landcare NSW and Landcare in NSW have flourished and grown in capacity and strength. Where we are would not have occurred without their passion and dedication to the cause.”
“I would like to thank Sonia Williams for her extraordinary contribution to Landcare in New England region and her pivotal role to development of Landcare NSW.
“Keith Hyde, our tireless Landcarer whose advocacy on a local, regional, state and national level has had major contributions across many areas in Landcare and the environment, especially policy, including representing NSW on the National Landcare Network (NLN) Members Council.
“Stuart Mosely, who has stood on the committee since 2011 and was very active in its early stages and major figure in development of Landcare in Western NSW who also stood as a State Representative on the NLN. And finally, Chris Scott, one of the founders of Landcare NSW, who stood as Chairman of the NSW Landcare Committee and has been involved with Landcare for the past 20 years, contributing to the development of the movement at all levels. Landcare NSW couldn’t have made it through the last ten years without them.
“Sonia, Keith, Stuart and Chris are reflections of why Landcare NSW is such a strong movement of change and something all Landcarers across the state should be proud of.
“I can’t thank them enough for all that they have done,” Steph said.
Representative of Lachlandcare and Landcare NSW Executive Committee Member, Keith Hyde, commended Steph and the Landcare NSW Council and staff, saying it had been a pleasure to be involved in the growth of the state body and movement.
“It’s been a really terrific journey in Landcare. The faces may have changed, but the atmosphere has not changed, and we have all worked really well together.
“It’s been a really great experience and I thank everyone involved in making my time with Landcare NSW so enjoyable,” Keith said.
