Regional awards honour community achievers

Bland Shire Mayor Tony Lord is inviting Bland Shire residents to consider nominating an inspirational local individual, business or group for the NSW/ACT Regional Achievement and Community Awards.

The awards were launched earlier this month to recognise and celebrate the community spirit and passion of people to make their communities a better place to live.

“If you know someone that has provided support and made a real difference in your life, why not give them a pat on the back and nominate them for an award,” Mayor Lord said.

“It would be great for our community contributors to be showcased in these Awards”

The awards are split into seven categories -

  • NSW Department of Industry, Lands Crown Reserve Trust, Community Manager's Award
  • Prime Super Employer Excellence in Aged Care Award
  • 1st Choice Rentals Volunteering Award
  • NSW Department of Industry, Lands Crown Reserve Trust, Corporate Manager's Award
  • Prime Super Agricultural Innovation Award
  • Ricoh Australia Customer Service Award
  • Awards Australia Community Group of the Year Award

Six category winners will be presented with $2,500 from Commonwealth Bank and a trophy, the other category winner will receive Television exposure on PRIME7 and a trophy.
Nominations are available online at and close on Wednesday 16 August.  For assistance please phone the Awards Office on 1300 735 445 or email
