“This year, council received 20 nominations for worthy individuals and groups from across the Shire who exemplify the community spirit and generosity that is so evident throughout the region,” she said. 

“This year, due to density limits, the Australia Day Awards Ceremony will be by invite only, however, council will livestream the ceremony on Facebook and we invite all members of the community to join the celebration ‘virtually’.”
