Cambridge Tree Trust Prepares to Represent Waipa

19 March 2012

Countdown Begins To National Community Awards

In just a few days the Cambridge Tree Trust will be going head to head with the country’s best and brightest voluntary groups and organisations at the TrustPower National Community Awards.

The 2011 TrustPower National Community Awards are being held in the Ashburton District from 23 - 25 March 2012.

Cambridge Tree Trust is representing the Waipa District at the National Awards – an honour they won after being named Supreme Winner at the TrustPower Waipa District Community Awards last year.

Joining the Cambridge Tree Trust at the National Awards will be representatives from 24 other voluntary groups or organisations from around the country that were named Supreme Winner at their regional TrustPower Community Awards.

At the Nationals, the Cambridge Tree Trust will give an eight minute presentation on what the group has achieved and why they deserve the title of TrustPower National Community Award Supreme Winner. Cambridge Tree Trust will be judged on that presentation, along with a 1,000 word summary of the organisation.

The presentations will take place on Saturday 24 March at the Methven Heritage Centre, with the Winner and Runner-Up being announced at an Awards dinner that evening being held at Terrace Downs.

TrustPower Community Relations Coordinator Suzi Luff says the Cambridge Tree Trust have put together a fantastic presentation.

“The Waipa community should be really proud of what the Cambridge Tree Trust has achieved. They will make wonderful ambassadors for your community at the TrustPower National Community Awards.

Attending the National Awards from the Cambridge Tree Trust will be Don Willoughby and Leslie Wood, along with Chairperson of Cambridge Community Board John Bishop and his partner Bev Heron.

The TrustPower National Community Award Supreme Winner will take home $2,500, a framed certificate, a trophy and a $500 voucher from Exult, a leading and specialist training provider for the community sector. The Runner Up will receive $1,500, a framed certificate and a $200 voucher from Exult.

Meanwhile, entries are now being taken for the 2012 TrustPower Waipa District Community Awards. Anyone can enter a group for the Awards and all voluntary groups and not-for-profit organisations are eligible to be entered. Entries close on Friday 23 March. The Supreme Winner of the 2012 TrustPower Waipa District Community Awards will go to the TrustPower National Community Awards in March 2013.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Todd Muller Needs To Own The Privacy Leak Scandal


Whenever a political scandal breaks, party leaders have two basic options. They can confess to being in boots and all, and try to brazen it out : nothing to see here, move on. This tended to be the John Key approach. Very hard to pull that off in this case, given that it involved violating the privacy of sick New Zealanders for party political gain.
The other option is to claim innocence of this terrible, no good, highly regrettable “error of judgement” and apologise profusely for the sins of others, while absolving your own good self of any responsibility. This has been Todd Muller’s chosen path.... More>>
