National Volunteers week

78/22

RESOLVED on the motion of Cr Fitzpatrick

National Volunteer Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering.

It is a chance for all of us to celebrate and recognise the vital work of all volunteers and to say thank you.

Volunteering brings people together - it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.

Bega Valley Shire has more than 300 volunteer organisations and we cannot thank the people who volunteer for the wellbeing of everyone in our community enough.

The 2016 census showed that our shire had a higher-than-average rate of volunteering than other NSW regional areas, with over a quarter of the population officially lending a hand.

Our volunteers are the backbone of our communities.

Think of carers, and services like Meals on Wheels, community transport, charities and goodwill shops, school canteens and P&Cs, Men’s Sheds, CWA, Surf Lifesaving, Land Care and hospital support groups.

These services, and more, are vital to our region and they rely on huge amounts of volunteer hours to operate.

Many Council services couldn’t operate without the tireless work of our volunteers.

Council alone has almost 400 volunteers managing and or maintaining our halls and cemeteries, sports grounds, the environment and the historic Montreal Goldfields.

It is always great to see so many people willing to lend a hand.

During the past few years of natural disasters and COVID-19, volunteers are more important than ever.

Volunteers have continued to help keep our communities running throughout the pandemic and have provided great support to people in need.

All while wearing face masks and adjusting to changing state government directions on lockdowns, social distancing, density limits and travel restrictions.

We want to say a huge thank you to all volunteers in Bega Valley Shire.

Together, through volunteering, we are changing communities for the better.

This week is the perfect time to recognise an outstanding volunteer in the shire this week by nominating them for a Bega Valley Medallion Award.

Details are on Council’s website.

To conclude remember, as this year’s theme goes, we are better together.
