Gladys To Call It A Day At 91
Gladys Goodall, aged 91, will be receiving thanks and a bouquet from Christchurchs Mayor, Garry Moore, on May 18 for her service to the Christchurch Safer Community Council.
She is retiring from her position as Age Concern Canterbury representative on the council but she will become patron of the council.
Gladys, who will be 92 next month, has been active with the council since it began as one of four pilot projects in 1991. The councils co-ordinator, Jan McLauchlan, says Gladys is a great role model for all of us. She lives her life to the full and makes a real contribution to the city.
She is still driving her car.
Her contact phone number is 358 8801.
Also at the May 18 presentation Mayor Moore will present framed certificates and $100 cheques to three recipients of this years councils Community Safer Awards.
Awards will be presented to Te Whare Roimata Organic Gardens, the Addington Bush Society, and the Strickland Street Community Gardens. Each will receive an award for building neighbourhood trust through creative use of the land.
