Cessnock City Council’s Volunteer Celebration Day held as part of International Volunteers Day was a great opportunity to thank local volunteers.  

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said on 5 December communities and organisations across the world come together to recognise the contribution volunteers have made.  

“We were joined by volunteers from Tidy Towns, Adopt-a-Road and Landcare along with volunteers from both our Libraries and the Performing Arts Centre”.  

“The dedication these individuals have shown has helped us to achieve so much more than we ever could have without the generous donation of their time, skills and energy”.  

“On behalf of all of Council, I wish to sincerely thank you for your efforts,” Cr Pynsent said.  

Volunteers attending the Cessnock City Council’s Volunteer Celebration Day enjoyed touring the Hunter Water recycled water plant, lunch at Hunter Valley Hotel Academy, presentations, a visit to Aboriginal Learning Circle and sampling local produce.
