2020 Deakin Community Awards



This year has been an extraordinarily difficult one for our nation and our local community, the most challenging Australia has faced outside of wartime.

It is a great testament to the Australian spirit to witness how we’ve come together as a community to provide support and assistance to those individuals and communities that have struggled during this unprecedented year.

Although I was not able to facilitate the usual Deakin Community Awards ceremony due to Covid-19 restrictions, I felt that this year, more than ever, it has important to recognise the contribution of our most humble, dedicated and passionate local volunteers and community groups.

The Deakin Community Awards recognise volunteers from the following categories: Youth, Open, Seniors and Group, and I would also like to make a special mention of the following four overall category winners:

~ 2020 Seniors Category – David Moncur – Ringwood Men’s Shed
~ 2020 Youth Category – Tayla Parsons – Dorset Primary
~ 2020 Open Category – Jonathon Duck – Croydon RSL
~ 2020 Group Category – Ariels VCNA

Congratulations to all of the 2020 Deakin Community Award recipients, and thank you for your service to our community.
