Eastwood steps down

A by-election will be held for a position on the Woodend-Sefton Community Board following the resignation of Karen Eastwood.

Ms Eastwood tendered her resignation at this week’s Board meeting, which was held a day later than originally scheduled due  to the impact of this week’s earthquake.

She served a term on the previous Woodend-Ashley Community Board, acting as Chairperson last year.

Ms Eastwood wished the new Board and the Council well in continuing to integrate fabulous facilities to the District and spoke of how the District will prosper and develop to be even more enticing than the already wonderful place it is.

The Board acknowledged the valued contribution that Ms Eastwood had made to the community, particularly in the Pegasus area.

Nominations for the position will open on Tuesday 22 November and close at noon on Thursday 22 December.  Forms and information will be available at the Rangiora Service Centre and on the Council website on Monday.
