2012 heritage volunteer awards

The Minister for heritage, The Hon Robyn Parker MP, honoured 25 individuals and organisations at the eleventh annual NSW Government Heritage Volunteer Awards (our 'Heritage heroes') on 11 December 2012.

The awards provide a unique opportunity to recognise the very important work that volunteers undertake to support heritage conservation and celebration throughout NSW each year.

"It was very pleasing again this year to see recipients being honoured from across the breadth of NSW, from the far south coast, to north coast, and throughout regional NSW.

"Those honoured exemplify the enormous amount of work and energy put in by volunteers in the heritage space, and showcase their passion and energy to make a difference.

"It was wonderful to be able to honour each individual and group who received 'Heritage heroes' awards this year, and I thank the NSW Heritage Council for their support of this important awards program," Ms Parker said.

The Heritage Volunteer Awards were first introduced in 2002 to recognise local community-based volunteers and heritage organisations in conserving NSW heritage.

2011 heritage volunteer awards

The Minister for Heritage, The Hon Robyn Parker MP, has honoured 24 people as 'heritage heroes' at the tenth annual NSW Government Heritage Volunteer Awards held on 9 December 2011.

The awards, presented by Gabrielle Kibble, outgoing Chair of the Heritage Council of NSW, recognised the outstanding contribution of volunteers in conserving the State's heritage.

"The awards recognise the exceptional contribution to heritage conservation, management and promotion made by our community's unsung heritage heroes," Ms Parker said.

"2011 saw a significant number of nominations to celebrate our heritage heroes. Our 2011 award winners represent a cross-section of community-based organisations, heritage agencies and individuals from regional and metropolitan areas of NSW, all of whom generously donate their time and effort.

"The NSW Government Heritage Volunteer Awards program has seen more than 200 groups and individuals formally acknowledged for their work over the years.

"I thank and congratulate all our heritage volunteers for their contribution towards our State's heritage." Ms Parker said.
