Life Membership for Chris Udy
Rev Chris Udy has retired as Minister of the Crows Nest Uniting Church. Life membership of the Hub is being conferred in recognition of Rev Udy’s early and ongoing support for the Hub, including facilitating Hub use of the Waverton Hall. The Life Membership Presentation was attended by about 40 members. Rev Udy was delighted to receive the life membership and talked about the importance of community especially in this age of social media.
