Over the past year alone we have seen a number of people and groups who have gone above and beyond to support fellow residents throughout the disruptions of the pandemic."

"It is these inspiring people who make a notable difference for our community and this is the perfect platform to recognise them. I highly encourage everyone to view Councils website and take a few minutes to nominate somebody you know for the contributions they have made to Baw Baw Shire". Cr Goss said.
