F&G chairman goes

The chairman of Southland Fish & Game has resigned after five years in the role.

Graeme Watson, of Queenstown, joined the council in 2009 and was elected chairman in 2015.

Mr Watson did not respond to calls, but manager Zane Moss said Mr Watson had decided to resign as chairman and from the council for personal reasons, including to spend more time with his family.

‘‘A role on the Fish & Game Council is purely voluntary and Graeme contributed a huge amount of his time to his role as chairman, for which the council is extremely grateful.’’

Mr Moss said his resignation would be a ‘‘real loss’’ for Southland Fish & Game.

A new chairman will be elected at the council’s meeting next month.
