Naturaliste Gratitude Awards

Do you know a local hero, someone who is always doing positive things in our community?  Perhaps they have come up with a great idea which has turned into a fabulous event that many get to enjoy.  Maybe they are a quiet achiever who works in the background on a number of a Committees, giving a lot of their time and energy to help others.

There are so many areas in our community where volunteers give of their generosity and tim from sport, environment, health, arts, schools, services like fire brigades and St John’s Ambulance, or sometimes a sincere acknowledgement of good community spirit.
