Dr Allan Mayfield (’66) has been recognised as the South Australian Citizen of the Year at this year’s Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards. A tireless volunteer in the Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council district, Allan has made a huge impact in his local community to increase the national and international profile of this beautiful region in SA. At the local community level, he has worked with Lions, secured funding for the famous Riesling Trail and acted as a liaison between local governments and landowners. It’s a wonderful recognition for a great individual out to make a real difference in his community.

It is with sadness that we advise that John Rees (’84) passed away suddenly at home on Friday 27 December 2019. Our thoughts are with John’s sister Jane and family. There is a tribute through this link with some photos of John, dating back to his days at Westminster: https://www.weeklytimesnow.com.au/tributes/notice/death-notices/john-david-leonard-rees/5228132/
Ting is an outstanding concert pianist as those of you at Westminster in 2013 would recall or perhaps you saw him perform at last year’s Westminster Music Night. He now runs his own piano school and will be mounting his Twilight Classics concert on Sunday 15 March and Sunday 22 March, 6.00 pm in the South Australian Art Gallery, Radford Auditorium (refreshments included). It’s a bold move with the artists, program and venue all looking amazing! If you enjoy fine classical music, this is shaping up to be a very special event not to be missed.
