Rhonda has been involved with the Pegasus Residents’ Group Incorporated (PRGI) since February 2013, serving most of that time as Secretary. Her background in administration has served her well as she has worked hard on building relationships between the residents’ group and other organisations. Regular meetings and communications with Council management and Todd Property (developer of Pegasus Town) have given her a good grounding for her role on the Community Board.
One of the major initiatives Rhonda has worked on in her role as PRGI secretary is the ‘Pegasus, Woodend and Waikuku Community Directory’. This publication has been produced annually since 2014 and grows in size and quality each year. The publication lists local businesses and organisations and is aimed at forging closer links, both socially and economically between the areas of Woodend/Woodend Beach, Pegasus and Waikuku/Waikuku Beach. Rhonda is a firm believer in keeping the community informed and has compiled news and information for the Pegasus community since late 2013.
Previously Rhonda lived in Hanmer Springs, Waikuku Beach and Mapua. She loves a small town, semi-rural environment. Rhonda has lived in Pegasus, with her husband John Allin, since March 2011 and is totally passionate about the area and all it has to offer. Spare time is spent enjoying the Pegasus environs by foot or cycle, reading or pottering on the computer.
Community connectivity and recreation are high on Rhonda’s agenda. This includes connectivity of our communities by roads, tracks and shared social opportunities. It is her intention to continue, working with others, towards growing proactive, healthy communities in all areas of the Woodend Sefton Community Board.
