Looking After Leisure Bay had its inaugural AGM on Saturday 30 March. We have had a tumultuous 12 months and the loss of Sean Murray who was taken from us all to early, meant we literally had to pick ourselves up by our bootstraps and forge ahead. Many of our plans were put on hold but 2019 will see those plans seeing the light of day and we will report back on a few things that are going to benefit the entire community in our upcoming newsletters. We had a few invited guests, among them our founding member Louise Schmidt, who also came up with our name some two years ago! One of the new additions to our calendar will be an annual Q&A session. This session will be open to all residents and property owners in Leisure Bay, and will be an opportunity for our community to interact directly with our committee regarding any ideas they may have in helping us as a community in protecting our environment.
Sadly we said goodbye to two members of our committee, Marinda Strydom and Matie Botha, both who have been solid servants of this community. Vanessa Murray will continue on as Chairperson, and Phillip Lennon stays on in his role as media and fundraising member. Vanessa will be temporarily assisted by Lizette Greef. Two new members joined our management committee. IT specialist and Managing Director of Cyberware, Jené DeSanté has taken the reins over from Marinda Strydom and is our new Secretary/Treasurer. Jené’s computer knowledge is becoming legendary in Leisure Bay and we look forward to her helping us adjust to the latest technologies that can help us, Look After Leisure Bay. Richard Sunter Joins forces with our Media and Fundraising committee member, Phillip Lennon, and he will be assisting us with future projects. Richard and his Wife Di run a few accommodation establishments in the Drakensberg and we will need his guidance for some exciting new ventures we will be embarking on.
