Gathering to say farewell to Anudhi
Anudhi, a pioneer of the environmental movement in the Byron Shire, was elected to Byron Council in 1980 and served as a councillor for 15 years.
She was a founding member of the environmental group, BEACON and the Byron Bay Community Association.
She also was involved in the campaign for a new Byron Bay library.
Byron Mayor Cr Jan Barham said Anudhi was a very strong advocate for the environment and the first ‘green type’ councillor elected in NSW.
“I found her a great inspiration,” she said.
“Everyone who knows Anudhi will be aware she was a pioneer in terms of environmental protection.”
