Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School stu­dent Darcy Owen on com­ing first in the poetry com­pe­ti­tion, ‘What Re­mem­brance Day Means to Me’, held by the Ber­ri­gan RSL.

The stan­dard of the en­tries was very high.

Th­ese po­ems are on dis­play at the Ber­ri­gan RSL for all to read.

Ber­ri­gan scooped the pool at the Keep New South Wales Beau­ti­ful Blue Star Sus­tain­abil­ity Re­gional Awards, re­ceiv­ing more awards than any other town in NSW.

We were nar­rowly beaten by Or­ange in the Over­all Re­gional Sus­tain­abil­ity Award, re­ceiv­ing a Highly Com­mended. A huge ef­fort for our lit­tle town.

This year we were not judged by pop­u­la­tion; it was open to ev­ery en­try.

Ber­ri­gan Shire Coun­cil has also con­grat­u­lated Ma­ree Ryan on her in­di­vid­ual award. She was hon­oured in the En­vi­ron­men­tal Achieve­ment Awards.

Thank you Ma­ree and all oth­ers in our com­mu­nity for making our shire so beau­ti­ful, each and ev­ery day.

We should all be very proud of this achieve­ment.

Awards are on dis­play in the win­dow of Daw­mac’s.
