“The NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards give our local communities an opportunity to say thank you to seniors for the positive contributions they make on a daily basis,” said Stuart Ayres.

"I offer my congratulations to Rachel, Tom, Alan and the Emu Plains Lions Club on receiving this award and say thank you to all of the seniors for the invaluable service they provide across our community,” Stuart Ayres said.

Individual recipients include:

  • Mr Tom Bell – service to the Penrith Community including supporting local charity groups and sporting groups,
