Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith has congratulated 3 community volunteers from the Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve Trust who have been recognised for their role in managing local Crown reserves.
“Many local reserves in Penrith including public halls, parks and sportsgrounds, are managed by community volunteers,” Stuart Ayres said.
“The Penrith communities rely on these volunteers to keep our public assets up and running.
“I would like to congratulate Richard Turner, James Plummer and Horst Mey who are among 1,100 reserve trust board members across NSW receiving service recognition awards to honour their contribution over one or more decades.
“These awards are for between 10 and 40 years of service, a remarkable effort.
“Each trustee is receiving a certificate and letter of congratulations from the Minister for Lands and Water, Niall Blair.
“Reserve trust members are also eligible for the annual Crown Reserve Trust Award which recognises the important work trust members do for the community.
“This award is part of the annual Regional Achievement and Community Awards
and recognises the work done by the volunteers, local communities and councils who manage Crown reserves
“The work of these trustees is highly valued and on behalf of the NSW Government I congratulate all those awarded.
“I encourage people in Penrith considering getting involved with their local trust to take the next step and find out more to make a difference in their community.”
