Dame Cindy with Mr John Wyatt and Mrs Sandra Wyatt of Kaikoura, QSM for services to the community
John Wyatt and Sandra Wyatt are respectively President and Trustee of the Board of Kaikoura Community Theatre, overseeing the governance of The Mayfair Theatre. Following the Kaikoura 2016 earthquake, when the theatre was facing demolition, they led volunteers through a programme of fundraising and planning to commence the rebuild, with Mr Wyatt assuming the role of Project Manager. Mrs Wyatt helped create ‘Mobile Mayfair’ so the community could still watch movie releases. The newly restored Mayfair Arts and Culture Centre was officially opened in 2020. Mr and Mrs Wyatt have been involved with the Kaikoura Lions Clubs, Kaikoura High School and Civil Defence. They continue to support projects and endeavours to revive earthquake-damaged Kaikoura.
