Now that things are looking a bit more normal back at Level 1, here are the plans for this month. As before, if we need to go back to Level 2, all face-to-face meetings will be postponed or moved to Zoom when possible. Hopefully there should be something here for everyone!

Intro to the 2020-21 DPS Council

We had an excellent turnout for our AGM earlier this week, and once again, were lucky enough to have a good, healthy Council elected.  As Gary mentioned at the meeting, a very big welcome to Judith Swan who is our newest Councillor, and many thanks to the Councillors who stepped down at the AGM: Glenn Symon, Ita Daniels, Brian Treanor, Jenny Longstaff, Antonio de Souza, and Simone Jackson who finished earlier in the year.

As not everyone was able to attend the meeting, and as we’ve had a few new members join over the lockdown months, this seems like a good time to briefly introduce the newly elected Council.  Without further ado, they are:
