Tif­fany hon­oured with win

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

FOR Eidsvold res­i­dent Tif­fany New­combe, it was just an­other day at the of­fice on Sun­day, Jan­uary 26.

Out mus­ter­ing on her fam­ily’s prop­erty in the Sun­shine Coast and Gympie re­gion, she had no clue she had won the young cit­i­zen of the year award for Eidsvold.

“It was an hon­our to be nom­i­nated, and I’m very thank­ful to re­ceive this award,” Ms New­combe said.

“I’ve been lucky to be sup­ported and wel­comed in the com­mu­nity, and I just want to help out wher­ever I can.”

Ms New­combe works at the RM Wil­liams tourist cen­tre for the coun­cil, but of­fers her time to sev­eral parts of the com­mu­nity.

This in­cludes help­ing with the Eidsvold Camp draft, cat­tle drives, the Eidsvold Show So­ci­ety, and more.

Nom­i­nated by Eidsvold icon and for­mer jacka­roo Mar­shall Langston, Tif­fany has been happy to call Eidsvold her home for the past three years.

“Be­cause it’s a wel­com­ing coun­try town, with a beau­ti­ful feel,” she said.
