Hard work recog­nised at morn­ing tea

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

THE Leschenault District Health Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil recog­nised long-serv­ing mem­ber Bill Adams for his hard work at a morn­ing tea cer­e­mony last week.

Mr Adams was in­vited to the event under what he called “false pre­tences”, be­liev­ing he had only been asked along for a cuppa be­fore the ad­vi­sory coun­cil’s reg­u­lar meet­ing.

In­stead, he was awarded with a cer­tifi­cate for his ser­vices with the Har­vey Shire Coun­cil first as a shire rep­re­sen­ta­tive, then as a com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tive, then re­turn­ing as the shire rep­re­sen­ta­tive when he was re-elected to coun­cil.

Mr Adams was one of the in­au­gu­ral mem­bers of the ad­vi­sory coun­cil, ap­pointed by the Min­is­ter for Health in 2006.

Fel­low coun­cil­lor and chair­woman of the ad­vi­sory coun­cil Amanda Lovitt pre­sented the cer- tifi­cate along with WA Coun­try Health Ser­vice South West re­gional op­er­a­tions man­ager Jeremy Hig­gins.

“Bill has been a strong ad­vo­cate of men’s health, with par­tic­u­lar con­cern for re­turned ser­vices per­son­nel through the Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs,” Ms Lovitt said.

“It was a real priv­i­lege to work with Bill over those years and pre­sent­ing him with his cer­tifi­cate to­day was an hon­our.”
