It’s time to recognise inspirational Redlands Coast residents who generously give their time to make our community a better place to live.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said nominations were now open for the 2022 Redlands Coast Australia Day Awards, which recognise the contributions made by people of all ages to our city.
“Every year we are amazed at the efforts of those who make the lives of others in our community better,” she said.
“These awards aim to recognise those high-achieving residents who have given freely of their time, knowledge and enthusiasm to make an outstanding contribution to our community.
“It could be someone who gives their time and heart to others, who pushes themselves to achieve at elite levels or who shows great innovation in their social, environmental and cultural projects.
“Whether they’re a tireless community advocate or long-serving volunteer, their dedication and sense of civic pride deserves to be recognised.
“I encourage anyone who knows someone who is deserving of recognition through an Australia Day award to nominate them so we can celebrate their contribution.”
