MESSAGE FROM THE WOODHILL SANDS TRUST BOARD ABOUT CHANGES TO OUR TEAM

The Trust exists to enhance and grow the riding community in Auckland and its surrounds. Woodhill Sands was acquired by the Trust in 2017 to ensure community ownership of this vitally important venue. We are very appreciative of your support and your contribution to the operation of Woodhill Sands over the 4 plus years of Trust ownership.

The Trust wanted to let our community know of an upcoming change in the Woodhill Sands team.

When the Trust acquired Woodhill Sands, we were extremely fortunate that Angela Nobilo was willing to continue her involvement in the running of Woodhill Sands. Angela had worked alongside Chris and Shelley Ross in establishing the venue, and she joined us as Venue Manager. This enabled a smooth transition to venue operation under Trust ownership and we are truly thankful to her for making this transition.

Since that time, she has led a team of people who support the equestrian activities at Woodhill Sands. For many venue users she is the key point of contact and she is truly regarded as the face of Woodhill Sands. She has worked tirelessly and devoted herself to the success of Woodhill Sands for many years and has been a champion of the venue within the sport and riding communities.

Angela has decided the time is now right for her to step down and move on from her role at Woodhill Sands. We will miss her greatly.

Angela leaves behind big shoes to fill. Over the next weeks, the team will be focusing on put ting in place systems and people to minimise any disruption and continue with our show calendar, to ensure we maintain a Woodhill Sands experience that is attractive to riders and user groups. Rest assured that while things might look a little different, we will all be working to ensure that for you it is business as usual with the common goal of providing Woodhill Sands for the future of our sport.

If you have any questions about our operations or upcoming shows, please contact Jenette Bell, Trust Manager on jenette@woodhillsands.co.nz or by phone on 027 2655 813.

It is with heartfelt thanks that we will say goodbye to Angela at the end of the month, and we wish her all the best for her next endeavours. We hope she remains connected to Woodhill Sands and is a frequent visitor.

On behalf of the Woodhill Sands Trust Board
Kathryn Roberts
Chair

At the conclusion of our last February show, we bid Angela a very sad but fond farewell. We know we'll still see her around but the amazing work she carried out as our Venue Manager will leave us with big shoes to fill and she will be hugely missed! A big thanks to those who stayed to help pack down and share in the farewell for Angela. Everyone so appreciates everything that she does and how Angela always goes above and beyond to help our riders out. I know you all join the team at Woodhill Sands in wishing her all the best.
