At the Annual General Meeting of the Plettenberg Bay Ratepayers and Residents Association (PBRRA), held on 19 December, Chairman Neville Petersen, who has given sterling service to the PBRRA for over nine years, stepped down from office for a richly-deserved retirement.

Vice Chairman Peter Gaylard thanked him on behalf of the Executive Committee for his dedicated service to the Association, his passion, his guidance, and his leadership.  He set a new direction this last year to try to enforce clean governance in Plett, and we are starting to see the success of his efforts.Peter expressed the EXCO’s appreciation of his many years as chairman and wished him a happy and restful retirement.

Peter also thanked Neville’s wife, Gail for sharing Neville with the Association, even under the most difficult and trying times, and for graciously opening their home for the many meetings held there.

A new chairman will be announced in mid-January.

Thank you once again
