VOLUNTEERS from the City of Wanneroo’s heritage and library services received recognition for their work and commitment to the community last Friday.

The City held an appreciation dinner on October 5 to celebrate and thank the volunteers.

“The City could not deliver all the fantastic services and programs for our residents and visitors without our volunteers,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

The City has more than 500 active volunteers, including the 82 volunteers who donate their time to heritage and library services.

Friday’s function acknowledged the work of volunteers from Buckingham House, Cockman House, the Community History Museum, libraries, and the Wanneroo Gallery.

Six volunteers also received volunteer excellence awards – Peter Roberts from the Community History Centre’s ‘Trace your family tree’ program, Maree Allen Wells from the Buckingham House education program, Cockman House heritage guide Iris Geneve, David Boudeville from the Girrawheen Library beginner computer class program, Simon Kenrick from the Clarkson Library beginner computer class program and tech help sessions, as well as Wanneroo Gallery’s Nic Romney.
