THE act of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity by Michael Gal­lagher and Ja­son Smith was recog­nised at the 2017 Cottes­loe Vol­un­teer Recognition Awards last Wednesday.

“These men have given their time and en­ergy to the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity, not just this past year, but for many years,” Cottes­loe Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

Mr Gal­lagher’s 16 years at Cottes­loe Rugby Union Football Club have in­cluded coach­ing, while Mr Smith co-or­di­nated Cottes­loe Carols by Can­dle­light at St Philips Church, Cottes­loe.

Mrs Dawkins said Cottes­loe recog­nised all or­gan­i­sa­tions, vol­un­teer groups and in­di­vid­u­als who had con­trib­uted to the Town.

"Your time and ded­i­ca­tion to the com­mu­nity is what makes it such a vi­brant and in­ter­ac­tive place to be, and one in which we are proud to be a part of,” Mrs Dawkins said.
