OUR TEAM

 

Lynne Taylor

A Southlander originally from Mataura, Lynne has been involved with the committee of the society since 1994 and was privileged to work with Professor Sir Don Beaven for many years.

She helps organise Janice and Lee’s support group with volunteer Janice Butland. Together they organise guest speakers and various outings for this group which meets on the last Friday of each month. See our events page for more detail on these outings.
