Excellence Award for the Recovery Hub
Byron Shire Council received a Local Government NSW Excellence Award in Sydney recently. Recognised for it’s work with the Mullumbimby and District Neighbourhood Centre during the recent record flood event.
Byron Shire Mayor, Michael Lyon, said the awards were well deserved recognition for the amazing work being done by Council staff and the Mullumbimby and District Neighbourhood Centre.
“To see this recognition for the Mullum Flood Recovery Centre is so deserved,” Mayor Lyon said.
“The centre, that was set up at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall, provided people with support, information, resources and access to state, federal and other agencies and organisations working in the recovery area,” he said.
“It’s an award that recognises the amazing work of not just our staff, but everyone involved including the Mullumbimby and District Neighbourhood Centre whose staff and volunteers make an incredible difference to our community every day.
“From March to August last year support was provided at the Recovery Centre to people and businesses on more than 8,000 occasions, in an environment that was safe, nurturing and reflective of our special community,” Mayor Lyon said.
