Raglan Arts Council secretary, Angela Williams has been recognised for her community work with a Mayoral Community Award.
The Waikato District Council’s Mayoral Community Awards were held on Wednesday morning with 13 nominees attending along with their friends and family. The Mayors Community Awards recognise outstanding contributions to the community by community heros.
These awards are held every two- years and recognise the significant contribution made by volunteers to the community and to the vitality of the Waikato district.
Angela Williams is the Minute Secretary for the Raglan Arts Council and treasurer and board member for the Raglan Chamber of Commerce. She helped organise a Sunday and public holiday bus service for the Raglan community when the service was cancelled. This is now a joint initiative run by the Raglan Chamber of Commerce and Waikato District Council. Prior to this Angela volunteered in the sports sector for 30 years. She is a great example of a volunteer who works tirelessly for her community but flies quietly under the radar.
Very well deserved. Congratulations Angela.
