Loren O’Sullivan - AIMES award for Service to the Community

 

Loren O’Sullivan was in attendance and presented to the board at the invitation of the Chair.

 

For her commitment to volunteering in Honduras, Loren O'Sullivan, former Youth Representative on the Birkenhead/Northcote Community Board 2007, has been awarded the AIMES award for Service to the Community. Loren hopes that her award will help inspire others to volunteer in their local or international communities.

 

Loren has been volunteering as an English teacher this year in Honduras. During her time in Central America, Loren has been living and working in an orphanage for abused and abandoned children. It is here where Loren has been able to pursue her passion for teaching and social justice, working with kids who have serious learning and behavioural difficulties. Loren has enjoyed this challenge so much that she is returning to Honduras for another year at NPH orphanage.

Gordon Martinsen

 

The Kaipātiki Local Board acknowledges Gordon Martinsen, a local resident and past member of the Birkenhead Northcote Community Board, Chair of the Birkenhead Residents Association, and active member of the Beach Haven Tennis Club, who passed away on Tuesday 19 November 2013.

Gordon was tireless in his support and advocacy for Birkenhead, personally leading the charge on many issues. Gordon chaired the BRA for many years and stood down in 2011 due to his deteriorating health.  Even after leaving the committee, he continued to play an important advisory role and delivered the BRA’s feedback on the Draft Unitary Plan to the Kaipātiki Local Board.  Gordon’s feedback was always well considered, thought provoking and constructive and highlighted his understanding and knowledge of local issues.

He was also an active member of the Beach Haven Tennis club for many years, where he worked effectively with Council to design an improved alignment of the tennis courts. 

Kaipātiki has benefitted in many ways from Gordon’s various contributions that have added value to our community and he will be sadly missed
