Three Gerringong locals have recently been honoured for their service to the community in their own particular ways.

Darrell Clingan was presented with a Premier’s Community Service Award for his many contributions to the community over the years, including serving as Chair of the South Precinct Committee. The Award is given to only two people in each electorate every year.
