Familtons receive a fitting farewell


Waitaki residents turned out yesterday at the Oamaru Public Gardens to farewell their mayor and mayoress, Alex and Heather Familton.

The couple are on their final round of farewell functions as Mr Familton prepares to step down from his role as mayor of Waitaki.

Introduced by Archdeacon Bernard Wilson, who said it was appropriate to have such a function to farewell “the mayor and mayoress of the people”, the couple were also thanked for their work and commitment by Waitaki MP Jacqui Dean.

Mrs Dean said one of Mr Familton’s greatest acheivements as mayor had been to steward the region through some tough times.
