On Wednesday evening SHBG Ltd joined the Rotary Club of Berrima District to farewell Jacqui Page, who has been Secretary for both organisations for many years and also a director of SHBG. Jacqui is moving to Brisbane and many of her friends and colleagues gathered at Mittagong RSL Club to give her a send-off.
SHBG chairman Charlotte Webb said that without Jacqui the company would not be where it is today. Her title did not do justice to the many tasks she undertook and in the five years Jacqui had been with the gardens she had helped the former association evolve into a company, had secured grants vital for the gardens’ development and tackled many issues that delayed the negotiation of a lease with Council, finally resulting in a signed lease this year.
Charlotte said that Jacqui had been a source of great support to her personally as chairman and that she would be sorely missed.
