WELCOME TO OUR NEW COORDINATOR

February 1, 2019

 

At the start of this year, we were very pleased to welcome Zainab Ansari as our new coordinator. Zainab had been a member of WINGS for some time prior to her appointment, working tirelessly as a willing and valuable member of our committee, as well as a volunteer in the office, all of which has helped her smooth transition into the role of coordinator.

For a friendly and warm welcome to Whangarei, to find out about local groups and events or just to have a chat and a cup of tea or coffee, call in to our office at 71 Bank Street (Room 12) to meet Zainab any day from Monday to Wednesday (9 am to 1 pm).
