Sharon Cameron and Lyn­dall Horne were each pre­sented with life mem­ber­ship of the Ber­ri­gan A&H So­ci­ety at the Ber­ri­gan Show on Sun­day.

Both were recog­nised for their com­mit­ment to help­ing the show run smoothly ev­ery year.

Mrs Horne be­came sec­re­tary in 2012 af­ter be­ing in­volved with the com­mit­tee for a cou­ple of years. She said it was an hon­our the com­mit­tee elected her to re­ceive life mem­ber­ship.

‘‘I don’t do this for the award, but be­cause I en­joy it,’’ she said.

‘‘I’ve been on the com­mit­tee for 10 years so com­pared to oth­ers I’m still a bit of a new­bie.

‘‘I work with a great com­mit­tee who make it very easy and man­age­able be­cause they have their roles.

‘‘We’ve been lucky to have ground im­prove­ments with the new pav­il­ion and the grants we se­cured to help us in­stall the un­der­ground elec­tric­ity sys­tem, plus the vol­un­teer grants we’ve se­cured to pur­chase items that make it eas­ier to do our jobs.’’

Mrs Cameron moved to Ber­ri­gan in 1998 and to make friends joined the show so­ci­ety.

Since join­ing she has be­come close friends with He­len Pyle and the pair are now joint horse secretaries.

Ber­ri­gan A&H So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Neville Dal­gliesh said both were well de­serv­ing of the ac­co­lades.

‘‘Sharon has been on the com­mit­tee for a long time. She’s been stew­ard­ing with He­len Pyle and they both or­gan­ise the horses.

‘‘It makes life re­ally easy for us be­cause we don’t need to do any­thing; it all just falls into place.

‘‘Lyn­dall has been sec­re­tary for last seven years and she’s just so ef­fi­cient. Ev­ery­thing is done per­fectly. You never have to worry about any­thing. I’ll ring her up and say ‘I think we need to do this and that’ and she’ll say ‘it’s done’.’’

Cer­tifi­cates of Ap­pre­ci­a­tion were also awarded on the day to Keith Gra­ham, Ray Eldridge, John Quinn, Ge­orge and Dawn Pyle, and Jim Macart­ney.

These awards recog­nise the valu­able con­tri­bu­tion each has made to the an­nual Ber­ri­gan Show and the Ber­ri­gan A&H So­ci­ety in their re­spec­tive roles as stew­ards, com­mit­tee mem­bers and ex­ec­u­tives and an­nounc­ers.
