I joined NZFUW in the 1960s and helped with gowning under Mrs Longbottom in a small house where the Psychology Building now stands. I became more involved with regalia when I joined the Regalia committee in 1983, began making hoods in 1984 and 1986 became the Regalia Convenor on the Committee, for the University graduations, taking over from Elizabeth Kerse. Later that year I took on the responsibility of organising the making of hoods and ordering gowns and trenchers, replacing Alma McCrae. I have been doing this ever since!
I was born in Dunedin, educated at Maori Hill School, St Hilda’s Collegiate and Otago University. I hold BA, BCom and MA degrees.
I am a long time parishioner, and Recorder at St John’s Church, Roslyn, a Life Member of NCW Dunedin, and a Friend of both Toitu and the Otago Museum. I am interested in history and geography which give meaning to to our overseas travel. I enjoy reading – from biography to mysteries (for relaxation!) and listening to music.
I love visiting family – Little River (Melbourne) Sydney and Christchurch and always look forward to their visits to us.
