THE Kiama Show Society’s own Sue Granger-Holcombe has been awarded with the Premier’s Community Service Award.
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward presented the Show Society’s hard-working secretary with the award last week.
Sue Granger-Holcombe humbly accepted her award and said it was an honour to be acknowledged on behalf of the Kiama Show Society.
“Everyone in the Show Society works so hard, it is pity everyone couldn’t get one,’’ she said.
“It is a pleasure to accept the award on behalf of all the wonderful volunteers who give up so much of their time to stage the show and keep the show tradition alive.’’
Mr Ward said Mrs Granger- Holcombe was recognised for her extensive service to the local community.
“Sue is a thoroughly deserving recipient of this Award for her many years of dedicated service, hard work and involvement with the Kiama Show Society,” he said.
“As Secretary of the Kiama Show Society for many years now, Mrs Granger-Holcombe has been instrumental in organising a number of key annual events including the behind-the-scenes work putting together the program for the Kiama Show, the annual launch event for the Kiama Show and the Annual General Meeting.
“I commend Sue on her generosity of spirit and for her tireless commitment to improving our local Kiama community.
“Sue is an example of the wonderfully dedicated volunteers we have in our community. We thank them all for their dedication and efforts.’’
