Nominations open for 2022 Local Hero Award

The last few years have been eventful with plenty of people stepping up to the plate with some extraordinary acts of generosity, bravery, compassion and accomplishment.

Now it is time to recognise some of these achievements, with nominations open for the 2022 Local Hero Award. Eurobodalla Mayor Mathew Hatcher – a previous recipient of the award – said Council was looking for people who had exceeded expectations, in any field.

“Whether that be community service, arts or sport, environment, education or health, we are looking for those shire residents you feel have gone above and beyond for the benefit of others,” Mayor Hatcher said.

“Entries are open until Friday 29 April, with the nomination form and guidelines on Council’s website. We’ve simplified the process with a quick an easy form.”

Our Local Heroes often need a bit of a push to accept recognition. 2021 Local Hero Pam Hamory was recognised for her five decades of voluntary work, including serving meals to the homeless, environmental restoration, and 25 years with the Red Cross. While accepting her award Ms Hamory described herself as “a little person in a big wheel, hoping to push it along”.

Mayor Hatcher said all nominees and their nominators would be invited to attend the 2022 Local Hero Award presentation at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden on Friday 10 May, where the finalists and winner will be announced.

“So if you know someone who has made an extraordinary effort or act – of compassion, generosity, bravery, or ingenuity – or achieved a particular professional accomplishment, get them nominated so they too can be recognised by their community,” he said.

For more information, nominations and guidelines, visit Council’s Local Hero Award webpage.
