LI­BRARY and her­itage ser­vices volunteers have been recog­nised for their con­tri­bu­tions to the City of Wan­neroo.

The City hosted a din­ner for the 77 volunteers to ac­knowl­edge their work with Buck­ing­ham House, Cock­man House, the community his­tory mu­seum, Books on Wheels, Wan­neroo Li­brary and Cul­tural Cen­tre and Wan­neroo Gallery.

Cock­man House guide Bev Bing­ham was among the eight peo­ple pre­sented with a Vol­un­teer Ex­cel­lence Award on the night.

Other win­ners were Buck­ing­ham House vol­un­teer Pam Wells; David Payne from Books on Wheels; Gir­rawheen and Clarkson li­braries’ English con­ver­sa­tion group volunteers Ge­orge Belin, Wilke Clyde and Peter Mel­drum; Tracey Gra­ham for her community his­tory sup­port and gallery helper Chris­tiane Rhodes.

Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City was grate­ful for their sup­port.

“We are proud and hum­bled by the con­tin­ued com­mit­ment our volunteers pro­vide to our res­i­dents, and events like these give us a chance to ac­knowl­edge their out­stand­ing ser­vice,” she said.

“On be­half of our res­i­dents, I would like to ex­tend a very big thank you to each vol­un­teer who gives their time so self­lessly, mak­ing a last­ing dif­fer­ence to our community.”
