Motueka Districts Neighbourhood Support also made the most of the occasion by thanking retiring Senior Constable Grant Heney who was the ‘driving force’ behind the establishment of Neighbourhood Support in Motueka. Grant was thanked and wished all the very best by Hilary Carson-Campbell who was the secretary of the Motueka Districts Management Committee of Neighbourhood Support (pictured below).

The function was attended by most members of the Management Committee, including Maree Dunlop who is the manager of Top of the South Neighbourhood Support, and Lys Bradley who is the Top of the South Board Chair.

We all wish Barbara and Grant all the very best for the future and thank them both, most sincerely, for many years of support to Neighbourhood Support in Motueka.
