John Hillier Memorial Morning Tea

Rail trail volunteers shared fond memories of John Hillier at a morning tea in Huon reserve on 20th April.

John made a significant contribution towards the establishment of the High Country Rail Trail, and his tireless work has been acknowledged by the creation of a cairn and small garden in the reserve.

John's wife Joy and son Ken, and twenty Rail Trail Action Group members who worked alongside John on the ongoing Rail Trail project shared a few stories of the highs and lows along the way at the over a cuppa in the new garden.
