* 17 April, Thursday 5pm, nominations close on the 2014 Community Service and Youth Service Awards:

Each year the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board presents a number of awards to recognise Community Service within the Spreydon/Heathcote area. 
The Board likes to acknowledge the ‘quiet achievers’, those who work endless voluntary hours in our community. These are often people on whom others rely to get things done, but who are not always recognised for their contribution. These awards are given to local community members and are intended to give public recognition to those who have freely contributed a significant term of voluntary service in one or more of the following areas:

      • Physical well-being, eg recreation/sport
      • Children, youth and education
      • Older adults
      • Disability
      • Physical environment
      • Social and economic well-being
      • Cultural, church and community service

Youth Service Awards are also presented in recognition of significant voluntary service by residents aged 25 or under, living in the Spreydon/Heathcote area.  This award is to recognize individual effort rather than that of a whole group ororganisation.
