Gathering to say farewell to Anudhi

A celebration of the life of Byron Bay environmental campaigner and thorn in the side of developers, Anudhi Wentworth, who died in her sleep last Sunday aged 79, will be held at the Byron Bay Community Centre next Thursday at 2pm.

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.”
