John’s involvement with the Guthrie-Smith Trust began whilst working for Brown Webb Richardson Ltd (BWR), who took over the accounting and secretarial services for the Trust in 1981. He progressed to secretary and then became a trustee in 2012.

In accepting the appointment John commented that “while I might have limited knowledge of tree species, insects and bird life, I am enthusiastic about the outdoors and keen to encourage outdoor education activity in all its forms for all ages but particularly school children.

“The Guthrie-Smith centre can offer so much to the citizens of New Zealand and I am dedicated to improve the facilities and their use for anyone keen to enjoy the precious environment that we have at Tutira.”
