Celebrating Community Achievement: Council Proud to Sponsor Awards
The awards, honouring success in communities across NSW and the ACT, will be presented at a gala dinner in the Blue Mountains on 8 November 2019.
Blue Mountains Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said: “We are proud to sponsor awards that recognise the hard work of local individuals, volunteers, community groups and businesses in our region.
“Partnering with the Regional Achievement and Community Awards provides an opportunity to share inspirational stories and honour the work of unsung heroes that might otherwise go unnoticed.
“The awards will also showcase our beautiful region.”
