Having a safe place to call home is a top priority for Buderim residents, and community members who’ve contributed towards safety and crime prevention in their neighborhood are set to be rewarded.
Division 6 councillor Christian Dickson, said the annual Buderim Community Safety Award would recognise locals who’ve worked towards the betterment of their community.
“This is a fantastic award that acknowledges individuals, groups and organisations that have made a positive impact on community safety and crime prevention in their local community,” Cr Dickson said.
Previous winners of the award include a group of volunteers who created the Active School Travel Program that assisted Buderim Mountain State School students walking to school. In 2009 the award went to local resident David Ewington, for outstanding long-service to the Buderim Neighbourhood Watch program.
The Buderim Community Safety Award will be presented at a community morning tea hosted by Buderim Safe in partnership with Queensland Police Service and council, on Thursday, 25 November 2010. Nominations for the award close on 1 November 2010.
