SHASA’s Kathryn Maxwell receives Eurobodalla Local Hero Award - Highly Commended 2022

SHASA’s Kathryn Maxwell recognised for her service to the community with a Eurobodalla Local Hero Award - Highly Commended 2022

At the Eurobodalla Shire Council’s local hero award ceremony this morning at the Botanic Gardens the Mayor, Mat Hatcher, announced that SHASA’s President Kathryn Maxwell was the recipient of a Eurobodalla Local Hero Highly Commended Award for 2022.

“I would especially like to thank Dallis Tanner for nominating me for the Local Hero Award for 2022. It is very gratifying to have such support in the community for my volunteer work” said Kathryn Maxwell.

“SHASA, your local community energy group and so much more, has a wonderful team of volunteers and this award recognises their efforts as much as mine. We have grown, even through the bushfires, floods and COVID pandemic, to undertake practical projects to achieve more resilient community in the Eurobodalla. I also undertake endless work on community awareness and education, via regular media releases, monthly SHASA newsletters, speaking on radio, attending markets, expos and community events. I has committed my retirement to the work of transitioning our community to a low carbon economy and building resilience to the changing climate at the same time” said Kathryn Maxwell

Key achievements recognised by the Eurobodalla Local Hero Panel include:

  • Solar installs on 14 community facilities in the Eurobodalla

  • Heatwave havens for 7 community facilities (2 already completed)

  • A Solar Bulk buy with more than 350 rooftop solar installations.

  • Weekly Eurobodalla Repair Cafe at the Red Door Hall in Moruya

  • Electric bike hire service at Moruya Bicycles

  • In partnership with South Coast Community Kitchen provide weekly meals and fresh food to 30 low income households in the Eurobodalla

  • In partnership with Volunteers for Peace provided 2,500 native trees and fruit trees to bushfire survivors.

  • A SHASA electric vehicle which has been test driven by over 80 locals. Eight of those test drivers then went ahead and purchased electric vehicles of their own, reaping the rewards and helping to drive electrification of transport

SHASA’s Kathryn Maxwell was recognised for her service to the community with a Eurobodalla Local Hero Award - Highly Commended 2022. With her is Dallis Tanner.
