Our Board members

CBN has always been extremely fortunate in our board members, who have served with diligence and warmth - keeping CBN on the road to good governance at all times.

Our first, unoffical guide and unelected board member was Richard Parson, who did a huge amunt to encourage us in our very early stages.

After Richard's untimely death, three Rotarians from Rotary Newlands stepped in and counselled us through the storms of opening bank accounts and the tribulations of registering for anything at all. They dealt with everything efficiently and without complaint. We thank them and will be ever grateful for the time they willingly gave to the cause of children and reading. Their names are recorded here with gratitude:

Roy Zazeraj (Chair 2014-2017)

Kenny van Aart

Mike Walwyn

Lesley Beake (Director)

When all three Rotarian board members resigned due to vaying health issues, we cast the net locally and also in Cape Town, welcoming four new board members, including two Stanford volunteers. They are:

Anthony Gregorowski (Chair)

Primrose Mrwebi

Hildegard Witbooi

David Mohr

Lesley Beake (Director)

We are also fortunate to have two ad hoc members of the board in Ursula Gregorowski and Tariro Masayiti, who give invaluable support and advice during our quarterly board meetings. Serving on a board of any kind is always more work than it seems at first. We salute them!
