Green Skills farewells Annabelle Newbury
Perth manager Annabelle Newbury has retired. It’s big news for the Green Skills community, especially the Perth office which she managed for 21 years.
In her farewell to Green Skills, Annabelle said, “It’s been a delight to work in such an exceptional organisation which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary. The impetus behind Green Skills formation in 1989 was to deal with the urgent issue of climate change. This is now more crucial than ever of course and makes the work we do matter a great deal.
“I have worked with so many wonderfully committed staff over the years, and particularly during my time as State Manager between 2007-2013, I got to know staff in all our offices very well.
“I wish you all the very best for the future and hope that each of you find joy and meaning in your work everyday and forge strong connections with the people who come into your lives.”
What a beautiful note to leave on, Annabelle. Thank you, it’s been an absolute pleasure and we also wish you much joy and connection in your next ventures. We will miss you!
