Heart and Soul

Grey Lynn & Around Chair, Paul Stephenson, led the formal farewell to Jennifer Northover this month as she retired from the Business Association Board.

He said for nine years Jennifer had been the chair, the secretary, indeed the heart and soul of the board and of the neighbourhood.

A resident of Grey Lynn for more than 25 years, Paul said Jennifer is the person who ‘has made this organisation happen!’

"Thank you Jennifer for your amazing spirit and commitment. We will miss you, yet know you’ll be here in Grey Lynn & around for many more years!"

At her request, Jennifer’s farewell was a quiet affair at the monthly Business Association networking event at local neighbourhood bar, Malt. Malt Public House is Grey Lynn’s Gastro Pub, and they hosted our first public get together since lockdown.

We all join Paul Stephenson to thank Jennifer for her incredible work and dedication to our Business Association and community. As members and friends, we wish her well and ask she keeps us posted on her next adventures!
