Des Kendrick – Life Member

In his working life Des was an upholsterer and well-known in the Whanganui business community for the quality of his work. He joined the club about 25 years ago , serving on the committee for many years, both as Secretary and President. Over 20 years ago he and two others set up the stall at River Market. Des has won many local and national prizes and has encouraged many others to compete and display their work. His work can be seen in many places, including the giant weta on display at the Information Centre. The Club's healthy state today is a tribute to his ideas and encouragement. In February 2021 Des was made a life member of the Club. Sadly, ill-health has now stopped his work.
