Brunswick Heads festival strikes gold at community awards
ORGANISERS of the Brunswick Heads Old and Gold Festival are on Cloud Nine after winning a major prize at the NSW and ACT Regional Achievement and Community Awards.
Linda Hibbard, Bruce McMaster and Kim Rosen accepted the Dobija Print World Tourism and Events Award at the recent presentation ceremony at Wagga Wagga.
"A lot of hard work goes into staging this much-loved festival and we acknowledge all the sponsors, committee members and volunteers who have been involved over the past 12 years, because it wouldn't happen without them," festival co-ordinator Linda Hibbard said.
"This win is for the town and the community of Brunswick Heads who come out in force to enjoy this fabulous day."
The Byron Community Centre (BCC) is also celebrating after winning the Prime Super Community of the Year Award for population over 15,000.
"I attribute BCC's achievements to the commitment, dedication and quality work of our volunteers, and also to the amazing, crazy team of part-time paid staff that guide and supervise them," centre spokeswoman Cherie Bromley said.
"The BCC is such a unique workplace. "Well done to all who have contributed to the achievements of the centre. This award is for you."
