CHRC nominations close today
NOMINATIONS for the annual Australia Day Awards close today, so don’t miss the chance to recognise your community hero or favourite community event. Deputy Mayor Cr Gail Godwin-Smith said last year, CHRC received 57 applications across the region, but this year, only about 20 had been received so far. The deputy mayor said the awards were a fantastic way to celebrate unsung heroes and young community champions, and make a real difference to someone’s life. To nominate someone, visit council’s website www.centralhighlands.qld.gov.au. Award winners will be announced at Australia Day celebrations around the region on January 26.
