On Friday 26 January the Shire was once again pleased to host the annual Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards and Picnic Breakfast event at Neergabby. The weather and atmosphere was wonderful and the morning was thoroughly enjoyed by all attendees.

The event began with a Citizenship Ceremony where Shire President Cr Wayne Fewster presided over the pledging of two new Australian Citizens, Georgia Maguire and Yi-Wen Lin.

Hon Melissa Price MP then gave the introduction to the Citizen of the Year Awards, followed by Cr Pecska, Cr Woods, Cr Weeks and Cr Balcombe who read the nominations and presented the awards.

🤩The winners of the Citizen of the Year Awards 2024 are:
🔹2024 Active Citizenship of the Year Award: Moore Clothes
