HAMILTON HILL’S Maureen Fisher-Sim picked up Cockburn’s top citizenship award on Tuesday.
Ms Fisher-Sim won the Premier’s Active Citizenship Award (formerly citizen of the year) for being at the helm of her suburb’s community association for many years.
Mayor Logan Howlett said she’d been a humble volunteer: “She is a staunch supporter and advocate for people less fortunate in the community and works to ensure their voices are heard where needed at all levels of government,” he said.
Stephanie Wilson took out the youth category. She is involved in Neighbourhood Watch and is on the committee of the Lakelands high school.
“She also plays the important role as the volunteer co-ordinator or the Friends of the Community, an organisation raising funds to redistribute them to those less fortunate,” Mr Howlett said.
The Harvest Lakes Residents Group was recognised for its clean-ups, replanting and revitalisation project at Harmony Lake in Atwell over the past three years.
