As part of the Meet the Candidates event last evening, the New Crossways Trust chair, Bill Southworth, officially opened the building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Two of the stalwart members of the old Crossways management committee, Ralph and Margaret Pannett, did the honours of pronouncing the building opened, and were thanked by Bill for their enormous efforts over the years.
In addition to their many years of work on the management committee, Ralph and Margaret made a huge contribution to the campaign to save Crossways. While this was ultimately unsuccessful, the time and effort Ralph and Margaret put into the campaign helped make it possible for Crossways to relocate to its new premises in Roxburgh Street. The community owes them a debt of gratitude for all their work over the last three decades.
