Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today congratulated the recipients of the Penrith 2020 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards.

The recipients attended a presentation today in conjunction with the Penrith CBD Corporation at Bethany on High Café.

“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:

  • Mrs Rachel Wong – dedication and commitment to the community through service to Nepean District Historical Society, Nepean Archaeology Group, Zonta Club of Nepean Valley, Friends of the Penrith Regional Gallery and the Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains,
  • Mr Tom Bell – service to the Penrith Community including supporting local charity groups and sporting groups,
  • Mr Alan Bideleux- service to the Penrith community thorough the Cambridge Park Lions Club and in particular their fundraising efforts to support drought stricken families in Trangie and Dubbo.
