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.
Emeritus Mayor Sandra McCarthy and Christine Thompson were honoured as Fellows of the University of Wollongong at a recent graduation ceremony. Mrs McCarthy received recognition for her long advocacy of healthy cities and local government, and Mrs Thompson for her work with the UOW Alumni, particularly raising funds for scholarships and awards through a bookshop.
