She thanked A Brocklehust and in their absence, R Powley and R Ashwell, who were not re-standing for the Board, for all their support and help given and said they had played an important part for an immense number of years. She extended best wishes to everyone. Cr Piercy said at the start of the session things were tense, but he had come to respect J Mitchell's chairmanship and admired her tenacity. He said she was an excellent Chairperson. He said Bluff had a testing time ahead and he hoped that the Bluff Board members attended the meetings, otherwise it was a waste of time being a Board Member. He said it was important that everyone put their views forward. The Councillor was the liaison between the Council and the Board, and he had a long association with Bluff and loved the place. He said Bluff had huge potential and good leadership at the Board level in taking initiatives to the Council, which was very important. He said it was time to take initiatives to the Council that were good ideas, to bring people into it and that was the only way to drive it. He wished J Mitchell the very best with her endeavours to get on the Board and hoped that everyone else worked as hard as she did. J Mitchell said Bluff had enjoyed having Cr Piercy on the Board. She said Cr Piercy was accepted as more of a Bluffie than a townie. A Brocklehurst thanked J Mitchell for her comments and said she had thoroughly enjoyed being a member of the Board. She wished J Mitchell and the new Board all the best. Cr Boniface said A Brocklehurst and R Powley had been on the Board for a number of years and Council appreciated the work they had put in. He said R Ashwell had been on the Board for a short time, but he had worked hard also. He said there was no better advocate than Cr Piercy around the Council table for the Bluff Community and he had been a vigorous supporter of Bluff. He wished A Brocklehurst, R Powley and R Ashwell well for the future and congratulated them for the sterling effort they had put in. There being no further business, the meeting finished at 8.10 pm. * * * * * * * * * *
