This year’s Shoalhaven Australia Day Ambassador will be Mr Peter Wilkins, a presenter on ABC’s Grandstand and Shoalhaven resident.
The Australia Day address forms part of the 2019 Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony on Thursday, 24 January 2018.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley is excited that ‘Wilko’ will take part in the ceremony that combines Shoalhaven Australia Day Awards, Shoalhaven Medal, The Shoalhaven Sporting Hall of Fame and Australia Citizenship ceremony.
Mayor of the City, Councillor Amanda Findley, says “The awards provide an opportunity for the community to acknowledge volunteers and people who contribute to the wellbeing, development and social welfare of the Shoalhaven. The ceremony will also officially recognise 33 Shoalhaven residents choosing to become Australian citizens and is incredibly moving for friends and families of those participants.”
The Shoalhaven City Council 2019 Australia Day Awards, Sporting Hall of Fame Awards and Citizenship Ceremony will commence 5.30pm at Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre.
