Nominations extended for Australia Day Awards
IT'S not too late to nominate someone you know in the local community who deserves recognition for their achievements with Australia Day Award nominations have been extended until Friday.

"We have a fantastic community and it's made up of individuals who are great role models, or who spend most of their free time helping others or encouraging the talents of our youth.
"Let's show them how proud we are of them by giving them the credit they're due."
Nominations are invited from individuals, service clubs, schools, associations or community organisations in the following categories:
