Life Members

There have been over the years, members who have given so much of their time and effort for the club. In recognition of their efforts, these members have been made Life Members of Coffs Harbour Garden Club. This privilege has not been treated lightly by the Club, and only people who have worked tirelessly for at least 10 years contributing significantly in that time to the successful operation and promotion of the Clubs’ events and activities, have been successfully nominated for Life Membership.

The following people have carried out this level of service, as well as exemplifying our motto of ‘Friendship through gardens’ and been awarded Life Membership of the Club:

  • Adele and Don Patterson – 1993
  • Rhona Brookes – 2001
  • Helen Dengate – 2005
  • Jack Lawson – 2006
  • Pat Roser – 2006
  • Jeffery Burgoyne – 2008
