North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Tay­lar Amonini

Hed­land has been named a fi­nal­ist in the 2017 Tidy Towns Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties Awards.

Port and South Hed­land have been named fi­nal­ists in the her­itage and cul­ture cat­e­gory of the awards.

Care For Hed­land chair­woman Kelly Howlett said the en­vi­ron­men­tal as­so­ci­a­tion was proud the town had been named a fi­nal­ist. “Tidy Towns/ Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties is so much more than Tidy Towns,” she said.

“It’s a cel­e­bra­tion of all things that make our com­mu­nity unique and cel­e­brates all the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties, large and small, that we as a com­mu­nity have done over the past 12 months.

“Be­ing a fi­nal­ist in this cat­e­gory is on the back of the ter­rific work our com­mu­nity does in terms of mar­kets, com­mu­nity events, art ex­hi­bi­tions and the Hed­land Art Awards.

“Thank you to all the com­mu­nity groups, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als that came to­gether to as­sist with our en­try and judges’ visit this year.”

The State win­ner and cat­e­gory win­ners will be an­nounced on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20 in Perth.

Ms Howlett said Care For Hed­land had al­ready started the work and ev­i­dence col­lect­ing for its 2018 sub­mis­sion and en­cour­aged all com­mu­nity groups, busi­nesses, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als to send in de­tails and photos of events and ac­tiv­i­ties that had taken place since July 1.
