Secretary, Anne Barrer

Secretary Anne Barrer has rejoined the committee in her previous two roles with responsibility for both secretarial duties and membership.

Anne has a wealth of experience in the field of adult education. She was an Academic Leader at NMIT for many years and is currently Regional Co-ordinator for Vakameasina, an up-skilling programme for the Pacific Island vineyard workers.

Anne believes that creativity is good for the soul no matter what our age. She is keen to encourage both young and old to come along and enjoy the benefits that the Society can offer.

An active member of the society since 2016, Anne particularly enjoys working with fibre (felting) and has recently started exploring acrylic painting.
