Award for vol­un­teers and for­mer coun­cil­lors

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

GIV­ING up free time to de­liver books and the car­ing for the coast by vol­un­teers Pat Elder and Lau­rel Bant was recog­nised at the 2016 Town of Cottes­loe Vol­un­teer Recog­ni­tion Awards re­cently.

“Both of these women have given their time, en­ergy and good­will to as­sist the com­mu­nity,” Cottes­loe Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

Ms Elder checks on the wel­fare of those she had taken books to from The Grove li­brary for the past 20 years, while Ms Bant has been a hands-on con­trib­u­tor to the work of Cottes­loe Coast­care.

For­mer Cottes­loe coun­cil­lors Rob Row­ell, Peter Jeanes and Jack Walsh were also recog­nised for their hard work and com­mit­ment while on the coun­cil, and as part of Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week.

Mrs Dawkins said all com­mu­nity groups and in­di­vid­u­als who vol­un­teered helped con­trib­ute to the town.

“With­out their time and ded­i­ca­tion we would not have the vi­brant in­ter­ac­tive com­mu­nity of which we are so proud in Cottes­loe,” she said.
