I became the Society’s Secretary in 1969, and later served as President and Treasurer. A long-term Beaumaris resident, I sadly witnessed the 1944 bushfire, and a power boat club in the 1960s profligately cutting a driveway down the Cliff, covering the Beaumaris fossil site.
I value our indigenous coastal plants and character, which BCS has long championed. And believe BCS should oppose Melbourne becoming an overpopulated megacity, which would extinguish Beaumaris’s character.
I’ve long supported BCS’s successful backing of candidates at council elections, which shows councillors and governments that the Society’s aims gain public endorsement.
