Big moves are afoot for two of Te Hōnonga a Iwi Restoring Rosedale Park’s biggest supporters.
Auckland Council Community Park Ranger Dan Marrow is heading just a little further north to take up a role as a park ranger in the Rodney and Hibiscus Coast region, which will mean he’s working closer to home.
Project co-ordinator Nicky Shave says Dan’s courage and positivity was key to getting our restoration off the ground.
“He’s been kind, patient, and willing to share knowledge, contacts and resources at every corner to help the project succeed.”
Dan has gotten to know many of our supporters and volunteers, and he will be really missed, Nicky says.
Rhiannon Leddra, who has been network manager at the Upper Waitematā Ecology Network (UWEN), is taking up a new community-based role as Wai Catchment connector at Whitebait Connection.
“Rhiannon has coordinated UWEN for two years and has been outstanding. She’s approachable, kind, and generous with her support,” Nicky says.
“Our project partners with Whitebait Connection so we can stay in touch with what Rhiannon is up to.
“We want to wish Dan and Rhiannon all the best with their new roles, and we hope they will stay part of the Te Hōno whānau.”
