Forbes Shire Council
A very unassuming Shirley Dukes, who loves working behind the scenes volunteering for many local organisations , was presented with the 2023 Senior Citizen of the Year Award in recognition of her dedication and efforts.
“I was surprised to be nominated, but I love to do anything for my grandchildren,” she said.
“Committees should put forward names for awards such as this. There are so many who work in the background – and it is so important for people to be on committees and actively helping otherwise these things won’t keep happening. “
Do you know someone who is just as deserving as a volunteer, someone like Shirley who works tirelessly behind the scenes? Council is seeking nominations for Citizen of the Year, Junior Citizen of the Year and Senior Citizen of the Year – for application forms or more information head to our website: www.forbes.nsw. gov.au

Santa’s making a list, he’s checking it twice… and this elf has not made the cut
Even though we have spotted him doing some helpful jobs, we’ve also noticed him up to no good. Unlike this elf, don’t get caught out. Instead, check out Visit NSW for some caravan and campground ideas https://brnw.ch/21wFo
