20 Dec END OF AN ERA & A NEW BEGINNING
With the conclusion of the contract by UrbanGrowth NSW and Connections, the responsibility for the community events in The Ponds has passed to The Ponds & Kellyville Ridge Community Association. This is a not-for-profit association established to be a voice for the residents of Kellyville Ridge and The Ponds.
Residents of The Ponds and Kellyville Ridge can apply to be members of the Association by completing an application form, which is on our website, thepondscommunity.com.au. The Association is managed by a management committee elected at the annual AGM.
The current office bearers are:
President: June Heinrich
Vice President: Dilip Bajaj
Secretary: Chantal Brenton
Treasurer: Rob Tinley
Membership Secretary: Julie-Ann Warton Public Officer: Ranjit Khera
Committee Members: Ritsh Samani, Prem Arul, Preeti Mistry, Annemarie Davies
Reporting to the Community Association Management Committee is the Social Committee, which is chaired by Kerrie Sheaves. Membership of this committee is open to interested members of the Community. The role of the Social Committee is to plan and co-ordinate the community events in The Ponds.
One of the strengths of the Ponds Community is the sense of community we feel – despite our differences in backgrounds and experiences. Our challenge going forward will be to maintain this sense of community without the assistance of the staff of Connections, especially Tuula Schaffer and Kerrie Dennett.
