Hardworking Joan stands down

ONE of Corindi's most dedicated volunteers is stepping down.

For more than 30 years Joan Webb has been part of volunteer and community groups in Corindi and the Northern Beaches but the time has come for her to focus on work and family.

"I'm getting busier with work and I just think it's time to hang up the boots," Joan said.

Over the decades she has been part of school and youth groups but for the past five years most people will recognise her as the face of the Corindi Hall committee.

She has been the secretary, treasurer, cleaner and general administration woman and has decided now is the time to hand the reins to someone else.

"I was the cleaner, applied for all the grants, organised hire, Youth Week events, came down and opened the gate when people needed to get in - you name it, I do it," she said.

Joan has two children of her own and one stepson, all who grew up in the area. She said playing a big part in community groups was something she loved to do.

"I do it for my community - I like helping people," she said.

Joan, who works at Darlington Holiday Park, will now take time to focus on work and her family.

"I work with about 200 kids during school holidays and I love it," she said.

Bob Piper and Jenny Kenna, with some help from the Corindi Community Group, will take Joan's place as carer for the Corindi Hall.
