Established in 2017, the Life Members board is recognition for those few that go above and beyond the call of duty. It also represents all of our volunteers over the 30 plus years we have been going. Without them the centre would not exist. Thanks to one and all.
Before the AGM meeting in September 2020, the committee decided to add 5 new life members to our existing board. Eva Ronning the president and member for many years, Gyan who has served tirelessly for a long time, Pam Burns our social director and fundraiser, Malcolm Bell our channeller and helper and Chad Fairfull who has help set up tables and chair and sages (clears) our rooms for many many years. Well done everyone..
In 2017 / 2018 the then committee decided to recognise the efforts of past and present members who went above and beyond the call of duty. In honour of all the people that served over the past 30 years a Honour Board was commissioned and officially unveiled at our open day in April 2018. Each Life member was also presented with a certificate of appreciation in a moving ceremony.

It must be added that despite the many searches and inquiries of past members and helpers, many names put forward had either moved on, passed or the current members had little information to go on. This plaque is a recognition of all the people that have served over the years. Much thanks must go to Molly Quick and others who tried to help with names and information.

Life Members Recognised 2018
The board will be added to in the future when the committee feels the needs to honour souls who deserve this mention. As an ongoing role the board was hung in the centre behind the front counter to remind people the need for selfless service to help others.
