TrustPower Community Awards

Through the TrustPower Community Awards, TrustPower, in partnership with Ashburton District Council,
recognises organisations and groups in the district that voluntarily dedicate time and energy to making our community a better place.

A series of 27 regional awards are held around New Zealand with regional winners competing for the top national prize at an annual awards ceremony.

Volunteer organisations from Ashburton District have performed extremely well in these awards over the years, reflecting the community spirit that thrives in our communities.

Mania-o-Roto Scouts at National Awards

Over the weekend of 27/28 March 2015, the Mania-o-Roto Scout group represented Ashburton District at the National Trustpower Awards in Wellington and while they didn't come away with the national title, they did a stellar presentation and made us proud of the voluntary work they have done in the community.

Pictured below is Mayor Angus McKay with Carolyn Bond-Hood and Barry Marett representing Mania-o-Roto Scout Zone at the National Awards.


Ashburton District Council Community Awards

The Council hosts its Community Awards every three years to honour distinguished voluntary community service. The Community Honours Award is a scheme under which an individual who has carried out meritorious voluntary community service and who has not been recognised through their own sector awards in the Ashburton District may be rewarded publicly for their efforts.

The awards are held in the second year of each Council three year term, with the next awards to be held in 2017.

Any inquiries regarding the nominations for the Community Honours Awards please contact Stacey McAllister, Executive Assistant to CEO & Mayor, email or phone 307 7700. ‚Äč
