Council rewards civically minded citizens

Council rewards civically minded citizens

Decades of work with youth movements; support for victims of crime; and work with young Maori are among the many ways Christchurch citizens have earned a Civic Award this year.

Mayor Garry Moore recently presented 33 individuals and organisations with a 2002 Civic Award recognising their contributions to the welfare of the city.

At the ceremony in the Christchurch City Council chambers, each recipient was given a medallion and certificate in front of invited guests that included family and friends.
