Applications for the 2021 Telford Bursary closed on 31 May 2021. The Telford Bursary Committee, comprising of Councillors Cowie, Ludemann and
Thomson met on 29 July to consider the applications and awarded the bursary as
• Oliver Howes - $2,000.00
• Amelia Clarke - $1,000.00
Amelia came to the meeting, was presented with a certificate and briefly
addressed the Council.
She talked about how much the bursary had meant to her and how much she was loving her time at Telford. She also outlined her hopes for the future, going on to gain vet nurse qualifications, and some overseas experience, before coming back to work in the New Zealand farm community. She has enjoyed herself in Balclutha and could ultimately see herself coming back to the district.
