Coral Barnard has called Campbelltown City home for 81 years.
The 93 year old who lives in Glenfield stood out at this year’s Campbelltown City Council Jubilee awards.
The awards recognise individuals and groups in Campbelltown who have contributed to the community for 50 years or more.
John Cornhill, of Leumeah, who has been part of the Campbelltown Camden District Band for 65 years and is still an active member today was another recipient when Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic presented this year’s awards.
Fourteen residents and organisations which collectively have devoted more than 700 years to the Campbelltown community were acknowledged at the 2019 Jubilee Awards.
The honour roll includes volunteers who devote their time to groups including local rural fire brigades, Meals on Wheels, the Scouts, Girl Guides, schools, churches and sports clubs, as well as charities that raise funds to give local students the best start in life.
“I thank all of the award recipients for the positive contribution you have made and continue to make to Campbelltown and for nurturing a strong sense of community in our city,’’ Mayor Brticevic said.
“The individuals we acknowledged today have gone above and beyond to improve the lives of others in our city and the organisations we recognised also deserve our thanks for their commitment and support which adds so much to our wellbeing,’’ Cr Brticevic said.
A posthumous Jubilee Award honoured Woodbine’s Eric Hughes who devoted decades to Kentlyn Rural Fire Brigade and was a life member of the NSW Rural Fire Service.
Wife, Janice Hughes also received a Jubilee Award in recognition of her community involvement and volunteer work.
