Tribute to Paul Cruickshank

Our longest serving Board member, Paul Cruickshank, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday 1 February. He passed away peacefully in his sleep surrounded by close friends and family. Paul experienced some health issues following cancer treatment in 2015, including a loss of hearing and challenges with balance and mobility.

Paul joined our Board in 2007 and was elected President in 2013. He was passionate about social justice and the environment and contributed to both these areas through a long career in environmental organisations, within our sector and as an environmental policy advisor to government. His most recent environmental legacy is demonstrated through his work to establish locally community owned renewable energy solutions (e.g. Farming the Sun) that we will all be able to benefit from for years to come. Paul also made a huge voluntary contribution. He served on many boards of non-government organisations and used his spare time to write grant applications for small environmental groups.

Paul helped steer us through many changes over the past decade. He was extremely supportive of us all and committed to what we wanted to achieve in our community. He had an incredibly positive outlook, loved putting big ideas into action. Once a decision to do something was made, he would be off doing it while the rest of us were still working out how to get started. Paul also loved to socialise and he was an enthusiastic participant in many of our events over the years. His cheerful presence, words of encouragement and big wide smile will be missed.
