Liverpool Plains Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope, has congratulated three well-known and respected local women who have been named amongst 90 entries on the NSW 2016 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.

 “Hidden Treasures is an annual initiative of the Department of Primary Industries’ Rural Women’s Network which recognises the outstanding efforts of women volunteers in NSW and helps to promote the valuable role of volunteering to the community,” Councillor Hope said.

“Linda Fittler has been a volunteer fire fighter with the Werris Creek Rural Fire Service since 1997 and she is also the brigade’s treasurer. Linda organises many fund raising events and open days which have benefited brigade members. She has also supported school and sporting organisations,” he said.

“Beryl Manion has been involved with numerous organisations over many years including school groups, sporting groups, the garden club, the CWA, local arts and crafts, the retirement homes committee, the Lions Club, the show and has been a driving force of the Rural heritage Village and Museum since its inception. Beryl also contributed to the local community by her role as a Councillor with LPSC including several terms as Deputy Mayor,” he continued.

“Colleen Wills has been volunteering and serving the community most of her life. Her role with the CWA has benefited so many people and organisations over many years, she’s helped entertain seniors at both Elmswood and Eloura and supported handicapped people get out and about. Colleen also served as a Councillor for 17 years and she continues her community building today with a community garden,” he said.

“On behalf of the entire community I thank Linda, Beryl and Colleen for their huge contributions over many years and congratulate them on being recognised as Hidden Treasures,” Councillor Hope concluded
