The Community Trust of Mid and South Canterbury has four new trustees.

Two new Timaru-based trustees, Sam Callander and Janine Quigley, join Ashburton residents Jane Argyle-Reed and Te Hurinui Clarke as trustees on the 11-member board, led by chief executive Liz Shea.

Ms Quigley works in business management, while Mrs Argyle-Reed is a partner in Argyle Welsh Finnigan, practising law.

Mr Callander works for the South Canterbury District Health Board and first connected with the trust in 2016, when he applied for a grant for the World Bike Polo Championships.

Ashburton-based trustee Mr Clarke is a lecturer at the University of Canterbury’s College of Education and has also undertaken research on retaining high school pupils in te reo Maori programmes.

The four new trustees join Temuka-based Lisa Stevenson, who works for Arowhenua Whanau Services, Timaru lawyer David Forman, aged care consultant, retailer Jan Hide, Mackenzie farmer/tourism operator Karen Simpson, Geraldine lawyer Jenifer Strauss and Ashburton property valuer Alistair Wing.
