Teviot Valley Community Board Members
Raymond Gunn (Chairperson)
Cliff Parker (Deputy Chairperson)
I am relatively new to the Teviot Valley, we moved here in June 2011 when my husband Tony and I purchased
the farm. We reside at the North end of the Valley with our children Mack, Tom and Matilda.
I am currently a stay at home mum to our three preschool aged children and responsible for the finance side of our business, I also enjoy helping out on the farm as often as I can.
Before moving here from Northern Southland where I was born and raised, I was actively involved in the local community through Plunket, playgroup, rugby, squash and racing clubs. I have previous experience in
events and management and am currently involved in the Roxburgh Plunket and Teviot Valley Educare committees.
I am looking forward to being a part of the district's future and will strive to do my best to help the community flourish.
I am a local businessman with interest in fruit growing, packing, exporting and retail. My family has a long history in this valley and I have a passion and a vision for its future.
This is my sixth term on the Teviot Valley Community Board (formerly the Roxburgh Community Board) and my first term on Council. I was Roxburgh Community Board Chair for two terms from 2007-2013. I believe in strong community boards with good leadership. I strive to bring experience, sound balanced decision-making, drive and enthusiasm to my work on both the Board and Council.
My interests include cycling, hunting, fishing and travel. Travel gives a better appreciation of our special place in the world and how fortunate we all are.
An active interest in developing growth within the Teviot Valley led to me becoming chairman of the Roxburgh Gorge Trail Trust. I strongly believe that economic development is a crucial component of a strong healthy vibrant community.
