The Victorian Regional Achievement & Community Awards have been launched for 2019 and the search for our community champions has begun.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill encouraged the community to get involved and nominate a local individual, community group or business that has made a difference to the Peninsula.

“We’re proud to have a hardworking community here on the Mornington Peninsula and it’s important we take a moment to recognise the efforts of our peers.

“The simple act of nominating someone in your community could make a world of difference” said Cr Gill.

We need to give thanks and now you can by nominating them into one of these categories;
