Do you know someone in the community who deserves recognition?

Now is the time to nominate exceptional people and groups in our community for a Tablelands Regional Council 2021 Australia Day Award.

‘The awards recognise outstanding locals who make our region a great place to work, live and play,’ said Mayor Rod Marti.

‘This year’s theme of ‘Reflect Respect Celebrate’ encourages us to reflect on the 60,000-year history of our nation and the new chapters that are written every day.

‘It reminds us to consider the highs and lows of our history and to respect the stories of others.

‘As a nation we can celebrate our achievements and us, it’s people.

 ‘And it’s these special people in our community who we want to recognise and celebrate.

‘Some have achieved wonders with their sporting endeavours while others give up many hours of their time to help in our community.

‘We want to honour them and show they are appreciated.

‘It only takes a few minutes to nominate someone for an award,’ said Mayor Marti.
