About Jamie

How would your closest friends describe you?
As a glass half full kinda guy, who is always on the go and thinks outside the square.

What has been one of your most defining moments in life?
The birth of my daughter and getting made redundant after 28 years in the tyre industry - that turned out to be a life changer.

Where are we most likely to find you on a Sunday afternoon?
Probably at work, drinking coffee or Stand up Paddleboarding.

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?
Always wanted to be really good at playing the guitar and be able to play along to some of my favourite Pink Floyd tunes.

If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
My guitars, cars, sound system, single malts and cigars.

Why did you become a Community Board member, and what do you hope you can bring to the table?
I wanted to get involved in what happens around the Peninsula and offer a broad view not only as a businessman but also as someone who grew up in Akaroa.

About Scott

How would your closest friend describe you?
My wife, who is my closest friend, describes me as generous, caring and hard work - but I’m sure she means hard working.

What has been one of your most defining moments in life?
Having children, who are now six, seven and eight. The responsibility and love that I felt for them has changed the way I viewed the world.

Where are we most likely to find you on a Sunday afternoon?
On Sunday afternoons you'll find me either playing or working on the farm at home with my three children - they have become rather good at cutting fire wood. Sundays have also become a social event since moving to Banks Peninsula three years ago, with neighbouring families coming over to share some tucker and a brew.

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?
I would like to get better at time management, as there never seems to be enough hours in the day to complete all the tasks I’d like to do. My wife would also like this…

If you could keep only five possessions, what would they be?
My five possessions would be my wedding ring, coffee machine, phone, 30 tonne excavator and my ute.

Why did you become a community board member, and what can you bring to the table?
I became a community board member so I could apply the skills I've learned in life and in business to voice community concerns and help benefit and grow our community within Christchurch City.  I have many years of travel and have seen some of the best and worst the world has to offer, and I also have experience in the farming and construction sector within New Zealand. I believe Banks Peninsula is one of New Zealand’s special environments and needs to be promoted and protected.

About Tori

How would your closest friends describe you?
I am like their mother, always trying to take care of them. Takes charge, talks a lot.

What has been one of your most defining moments in life?
Having my two children. Also going on a leadership course when I was 3 form (year 9), I realised I thrive on helping others.

Where are we most likely to find you on a Sunday afternoon?
At home spending time with my husband and children or in the city with my family visiting friends.

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?
Another language, Te Reo, sign language, etc.

If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
My pillow, slippers, cell phone (sorry - modern technology has made life too simple), my handbag (a woman’s handbag is so full of useful things).

Why did you become a community board member, and what do you hope you can bring to the table?
Because I wanted to see some local projects completed/repaired. I will be bringing passion, enthusiasm also a good ear to listen.
