Join the PRGI Committee
We invite all those who are passionate about preserving, restoring, and developing our unique heritage, community, and environment to think about joining our Pegasus Residents' Committee.
Is there something that drives you mad in the community that you feel no one is doing anything about?
Now is your chance to DO SOMETHING about it!
We also recognise and embrace that we have a broad and diverse community, and we would like to reflect that on our PRGI Committee.
On the Committee, we each have our own passions and strengths and get to work on issues that we find fulfilling. At the same time, we support others and work as a team.
If you would like to share your ideas and become a Committee member, please get in touch with our Secretary via: email@example.com
