CNC Life Membership – Helen Timms
Greg Knight has been a vital part of Christchurch Netball for 40 years. His clinic onsite has gone from strength to strength and has enabled him and his company to operate their practice at the courts every Saturday. Greg and his team are also an integral part of our representative programme and assist at Summer Camps as required. He always generously gives of his time and knowledge and is a well deserved recipient of the Excellence in Professional Service Award.
Karen Jamieson first turned up at netball in the 1990’s as a player but then was soon roped into being a volunteer due to her passion for the game and her willingness to give her time, energy and enthusiasm. She has such great generosity of spirit and can-do attitude. She has been a grader for 13 years and her helpfulness in the office as part of Competition Committee (2018-22) is legendary. Karen is well known at the courts as she is there all day every Saturday – always helping out where needed, always with a smile.
Margaret Western first came to Christchurch Netball as a U16 Representative Manager in 2010 and her involvement continued with representatives in various roles through to 2019. Since 2013 she has also been a dedicated and enthusiastic Bench Official achieving NZ Qualifications & an award. Margaret is currently on the Game Development Committee and loves being involved first with Hearts and the Saints Netball Clubs.
Helen Timms service to netball started in 1979 and to this day she has continued to be a vital and enthusiastic member of our Netball Community. In that time she has achieved many qualifications in umpiring and as a bench official. Helen still supports and encourages our young future umpires as well as assisting with delivery of rules sessions as well as volunteering as a Bench Official (since 2006) on Tuesdays and Saturdays. During this time Helen has been actively involved in the Umpires Office (2006-08), as an Umpires Allocator (2009-10) and on the Game Official's committee (2010).
