10 June 2015 Mayor Thanks Volunteers

The unsung heroes that form the small army of volunteers who help keep the city’s community facilities operating, or offer their time and expertise on advisory groups, have been thanked personally by the Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, at a function at the Regional Gallery.

 

“I’m humbled every time I come across the many, many selfless heroes behind the sports, community and cultural facilities that we often take for granted,” said Cr Knight. “I never cease to be amazed when I find out just how many hours of their lives people are happy to give up. In some cases, when you add it up, it’s literally years. So I’m delighted to have this opportunity to say thank you personally to the people who do so much for the whole Coffs Harbour community.”

 

The volunteers invited to attend were those who give their time and expertise to help manage community facilities and also those who sit on local advisory committees. At the event, the Mayor and Steve McGrath, Council’s General Manager, presented plaques to members of the Access Advisory committee, Bayldon Community Centre Facility Management committee, Coramba Community Hall Facility Management committee, Cultural Reference Group, Eastern Dorrigo Showground & Community Hall Facility Management committee, Multicultural Reference Group, Nana Glen Sport, Recreation & Equestrian Centre Facility Management committee, Sportz Central Advisory committee, Woolgoolga Community Village Facility Management committee and the Yandarra Aboriginal Consultative committee.

 

Community Service Awards to mark many years of service were also presented to John Davis of Sportz Central (20 years) and Nicholas Timms (14 years) of the Eastern Dorrigo Showground and Community Hall Facility Management Committee.
