The Federal Member for Aston, Hon Alan Tudge MP, is encouraging Knox residents to nominate an individual or community group they believe deserves recognition for service to the community.
The Aston Community Awards celebrate local volunteers and community groups who give their time, skill and energy to helping others and making the Knox community a better place to live.
Mr Tudge said that he is pleased to be able to honour the hard work of local Knox volunteers, which all too often goes unnoticed.
“We have some outstanding volunteers in our community, and the Aston Community Awards are a chance to recognise them,” said Mr Tudge.
“It is important that we properly thank these individuals for all of their work.”
“Nominations are now open and I encourage Knox residents to nominate their unsung hero or community group for the recognition they deserve.”
Mr Tudge said that the Aston Community Awards will recognise local volunteers in four categories:
- Youth Volunteer Achievement Award;
- Individual Volunteer Achievement Award;
- Community Group Achievement Award; and
- Senior Volunteer Achievement Award.
The Aston Community Awards ceremony will be held on Friday 4 September 2015 at the Knox Italian Club in Rowville.
Nominating is a simple, two minute process and self-nominations are welcome. Nominations close on the 14 August 2015.
Nomination forms can be completed on Mr Tudge’s website at www.alantudge.com.au or by contacting his office on 9887 3890.
