The Bega Valley Shire Council is determined to acknowledge and honour the effort of their volunteers.

Mayor Kristy McBain said the community medallions have always been well received, the recipients tend to be those who never look for rewards for their work.

“One of our great strengths as a community is the effort given in supporting others,” Cr McBain 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 medallions, we have a way to acknowledge this work and to say thank you to those volunteers.”

Nomination forms are available on Council’s website and must be submitted before the end of February. For more information contact council’s executive assistants on 6499 2104 or email
