On Thursday 15 June, the Minister for Multiculturalism and Disability Services, the Hon Ray Williams, visited Bateau Bay Neighbourhood Centre to hear first-hand about the work volunteers are doing. He presented Premiers Volunteer Recognition Program certificates to several volunteers and former volunteers, including long-serving volunteers from both Bateau Bay Neighbourhood Centre and our sister Centre, Berkeley Vale Neighbourhood Centre. Both Centres registered to adopt the Volunteering NSW Statement of Principles.
Photos of our Berkeley Vale NC volunteers receiving their awards can be found on their website at bvnc.org.au.
At right is our BBNC Brochure. The Brochure may be useful for people who are new to the area, who are referring people looking for assistance, services or neighbourhood activities, or for people who are just curious about what we do. It can be read on screen, or printed on two sides of A4 paper, with a middle fold to make a booklet.
