Paul Lobb

My principal place of residence is in the Kaitake Community Board area.

I have lived in Oakura for over 40 years. I am married to Kathy and have four children who all attended Oakura School. Back in those days I was on the School Committee and then a member of the inaugural Board of Trustees. All our children are married, live in the NPDC area and we have 10 grandchildren.

I semi-retired last year after almost 50 years in agricultural research. I currently have a part time job in this area. I am a lifetime and founding member of the Oakura Boardriders Club, and at various times held the role of secretary, treasurer and president.

I enjoy family time, fishing, gardening, walking and spend a few hours every other month checking a trap line for the Kaitake ranges Conservation Trust. Following the recent sale of our small farm up Wairau Rd we are currently building our retirement home in Oakura.
