Volunteers to be recognised at Civic Honours Awards ceremony

One group and nine individuals will be presented with Civic Honours Awards at a public ceremony in Hastings later this month.

The awards are presented annually by the Hastings District Council to recognise individuals, groups or voluntary organisations that have contributed significantly to the local community.

The 2014 ceremony is to be held in The Cheval Room at the Hawke’s Bay Racing Centre with Mayor Lawrence Yule presenting awards to:

The Hastings Heritage Trails Society Inc - for the development of trails around Hawke’s Bay

Bob Hall – 15 years voluntary work with Habitat for Humanity

Bert Lincoln – coordinator of the Flaxmere Community Patrol

Betty Price – for her involvement with the Forest and Bird Society and the Girl Guide Movement

Glenys Riddell – 38 years support of the Girl Guides

Ross Sweatman – Santa Claus to thousands of Hastings residents over the past 13 years

Tong Too – tireless service to the ethnic communities of Hawke’s Bay

Norm Treneman – for more than 40 years has maintained clock in the Hastings CBD

Peggy van Asch – preservation of Duart House in Havelock North

Pauline Vesty – 15 years voluntary involvement in the education sector
Chairman of the Civic Awards subcommittee, Councillor Kevin Watkins says “The awards are a great chance to recognise the work of the districts volunteers, who between them have given thousands of hours service to our community.”

Councillor Watkins says “Volunteers are playing an increasingly important role in ensuring a large variety of services are maintained in Hastings. They are the backbone of our society and so many organisations would fail if it was not for the dedication and commitment of the volunteers.”

Friends and family of the recipients will attend the ceremony and members of the public are also welcome to be part of this special evening.

The 2014 Civic Honours Awards ceremony will be held on Monday 26th May 2014 in the Cheval Room at the Hawke’s Bay Racing Centre from 5.30pm.
