Recently I had a chance to celebrate the amazing contribution to the community made by Mr Bill Way of Kurri Kurri. Bill has done an enormous amount of work over the past 30 years through Kurri Kurri Tidy Towns, Towns with Heart, Lions Club, Men’s Shed and his church. If there is a walk, a plaque or a statue that is less than 30 years old in Kurri Kurri there is every chance that Bill was involved in its installation. Bill received a NSW Government Community Service Award at a surprise morning tea at the Log of Knowledge Park, Pelaw Main. Many of the volunteers who served with Bill in those various groups were on hand to celebrate the special occasion with him, as well as family who were invited to the morning tea. I recognise the support of Cessnock City Council in making the morning tea possible. Congratulations Bill, you little champion.
