The Mayor and councillors Canton, Edgar, Ensor, Dowler, and myself attended the recent 2014 Outstanding Community Service Awards ceremony held at the council chambers on Friday 24 July. This was a wonderful occasion to celebrate and acknowledge the selfless voluntary contribution of ten individuals that benefits our community.
The successful 2014 award recipients were: Gordon Currie, Mary Keddie, Margaret Green, Roy Reid, Colin Gibbs, Peter Webster, Mary Garner, Eileen Stewart, Warren Webby, and Paul Wilkins. Each recipient gave a moving speech of thanks for the support they received and insightful observations and stories over the years of their selfless voluntary work for our community.
I would again like to thank each recipient for their outstanding contribution to our community. Thank you.
