…from the desk of the Clevedon Business Association
Murray Helm, of 17Photos, has stood down as Chairman of the Clevedon Business Association after 6 years of service. Murray was instrumental in rejuvenating the association, initiating projects such as the street signage in the village, the www.clevedon.co.nz website, directory brochure and the marketing of the A&P show, not to mention the mysterious arrival of Santa at the District Centre each year.
He has created a great platform, which the new committee will maintain, as well as looking to grow the association with new offerings. The Clevedon Business Association members and
committee sincerely thank Murray for his commitment, hard work and energy and look forward to his continued involvement as an association member.
