Civic Honours awarded to outstanding volunteers

Monday October 21 2013

The awards will be presented at a ceremony to be held at the Convention Centre on Tuesday 1 October at 5.30pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend the ceremony and show their support for these worthy volunteers.

Mayor Jono Naylor says we have some amazing volunteers in our City, and Civic Honour Awards is an opportunity to celebrate the incredible work that these residents do in our community.

"It is testament to the strength of our community that we are again presenting six Civic Honour Awards in 2013.  These high level awards are given to those who have generally given hours of voluntary service over many years, purely for the benefit of others.  It will be an honour to present these awards."

Civic Honours are given to local individuals and are awarded every year in October with nominations opening in June.

The voluntary service must not be a professional one, or one that they undertake as part of their paid employment.
