Nominations close soon for Redlands Coast Australia Day Awards


If you know someone doing extraordinary things on Redlands Coast, Council wants to hear from you.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said nominations were sought for the annual Australia Day Awards, which recognise the initiative, contribution and hard work of Redlands Coast residents and community groups.

“There may be a work colleague, family member or friend doing something naturally wonderful and who you feel deserves recognition,” she said.

“It could be someone who gives their time and heart to others, who pushes themselves to achieve at elite levels or who shows great innovation in their social, environmental and cultural projects.

“2020 has been a unique and challenging year for many in our community and these awards are an opportunity to acknowledge and recognise people who inspire us by example, bring us together and set us apart.”
