We are delighted to see one of our Trustees, Alister, recognised for his tireless work for the community! Outstanding stuff πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Manapouri volunteer Alister Burgess has been described as a man who makes things happen.

His tireless efforts for his community were officially recognised on Tuesday 14 June with the presentation of a Community Service Award from the Fiordland Community Board and Southland District Council.

Southland District Mayor Gary Tong presented the award, and flowers to Mr Burgess's wife Julie.

Mr Burgess has worked countless hours voluntarily on the Lake to Lake Cycle Trail, for Weedbusters and on general maintenance around the Manapouri township.

Mr Burgess was instrumental in the clearing and beautification of the north end of Frasers Beach at Manapouri. The area is now aesthetically pleasing for the enjoyment of people of all ages.

He was deputy chair of the former Manapouri Community Development Area Subcommittee.

His citation says β€œhe enjoys the outdoors and loves getting stuck into things. He takes pride in his community and is always available to the people”.
