My wife and I came to Thames some 7 years ago to enjoy the more measured pace of the Coromandel. My work life has included many years self-employed, running a couple of businesses plus a dozen years working in a DHB in a variety of clinical and managerial roles. I am now retired and am pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this resilience initiative, HRCT. I have an interest in the role that Electric Vehicles and solar voltaics might have in reducing emissions.
With five grandchildren I have increasing motivation to collaborate around resilience focused projects, particularly with respect to local responses to the climate crisis, energy inequality and emissions free transport initiatives.
