Roll of Honour

We encourage everyone to share a bit about their story, listen to the stories of others and celebrate with the people around you. Because we’re all part of the story.

The Awards acknowledge the unsung heroes of our community who through their contributions make our Shire a better place. These individuals and organisations offer outstanding service each day and enable our communities to be stronger as a result of their tireless efforts.
