Mr Riddell became involved in the Keep Beautiful movement in 2006 as the Deputy Chair of the Massey Community Board in Auckland. Since then he has served as the Chair of the Community Board, and more recently retained his involvement in the Keep Beautiful movement as the Boards representative on Keep Waitakere Beautiful.
“I believe the Keep Beautiful movement has much to offer New Zealand and should be the largest environmental programme in NZ. The concept is apolitical, and provides hundreds and thousands of people with their first taste of practical environmental protection in the form of litter control,” says Mr Riddell.
In addition to the appointment of Mr Riddell as Chair, the following board was announced at the AGM held in Christchurch:
John Riddell Zone 1 / Upper North Island
TBC Zone 2 / Central North Island
Heather Clark Zone 3 / Lower North Island
Alexandra Davids Zone 4 / Upper South Island
Jan Tucker Zone 5 / Lower South Island
Nelson Wu Silkfern Co Sec
