NOMINATIONS are currently being called for one of the Bega Valley Shire’s special awards. 

The Bega Valley Shire Medallion recognises the outstanding work of many of our unsung volunteers across our community.

Mayor Bill Taylor said the community medallion was always well received because the recipients tended to be those who never looked for rewards for their work. 

 “One of our great strengths as a community is the effort given in supporting others,” Cr Taylor said.

 “We have literally hundreds of people in our community who are prepared to give up their time to ensure the welfare of others.

“Through the shire medallion, we have a way to acknowledge this work and to say thank you to those volunteers.”

 Cr Taylor is encouraging organisations, individuals and families to nominate candidates for the medallion.

 “We know from past experience that some people are reluctant to nominate a person because they think that someone else has done it.

 “This is not always the case and we are more than happy to receive dual nominations,” he said.

 Official nomination forms are available from the BVSC website or by phoning Janelle Curtis or Bec Jones on 6499 2104. 

Nominations close on Friday, June 13.

Nominations that have been submitted since the last ceremony will be considered as part of the nomination process.
