Member for Kiama Gareth Ward is today encouraging local residents and community organisations in the Kiama electorate to celebrate the positive role seniors play in our towns and villages by nominating them for the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.

Mr Ward said that the 2024 Seniors Festival and the Awards celebrate the outstanding contributions and achievements of our local seniors who contribute so much.

“If you know a local senior in the Kiama electorate who helps make our local community great, inspiring and active, then I encourage you to nominate them for official acknowledgement of their distinguished contribution and volunteering efforts,” he said.

Please download the nomination form template here (PDF file format).

Nomination forms are also available in the Kiama Electorate Office at the front desk, 102 Terralong Street, Kiama NSW 2533.

Nominations will close at 5pm on Tuesday 12th March 2024.

“This annual festival is about celebrating the positive impact of older people in our families and society.

“Nominations are now open for the awards program, one of many initiatives the NSW Government promotes to support the state’s seniors living happy, healthy, and active lives.

“Winners of the Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival which runs from 11th – 24th March 2024.

“This awards program is part of an exciting schedule of events and is about highlighting our seniors’ continued efforts in helping our Kiama electorate to thrive.
