Hard work recognised at morning tea
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.”
