A Tribute to Shirley Joiner

We are deeply saddened to inform you that Shirley Joiner passed away on Easter Sunday after a long illness. Shirley was the backbone of PPG for many years, and she inspired many of us with her pioneering spirit.

Meetings

Our committee meetings are (usually) held on the 1st Thursday of the month at The Parents Place.
CURRENT AND NEW MEMBERS WELCOME!
Our informal coffee meetings are held on each preceding Saturday at Mandurah Quay Waterside Restaurant. EVERYONE is welcome to our coffee meetings to find out what we’re doing, and to suggest what we could be doing. Please see our Calendar below for meeting dates in 2017.

PPG Committee

We are delighted to announce that we have a new secretary Diane Louw, and assistants Barbara Sing, Jo Drew and Susanne Godden. Dave Thomas is our treasurer. Mel Tuckey is our submissions officer.
Linda Thorpe manages our website, e-newsletters and grant applications. Koby Anderson does our water testing. Barry Small manages our social media. Coral Richards, Caroline Knight and Les Hodgeson assist with PR and events.
Perhaps you’re wondering “who is the president?” Well, PPG believes in rotating leadership and so has a “revolving chair” rather than a president.

Annual General Meeting

Our AGM was held on 17th November 2016. Please click here for our Annual Report. Special thanks go to our guest speaker Greg Keighery who talked about what being officially listed as a “Threatened Ecological Community” means for our Banksia Woodlands.
