“To win this award is very humbling and I’m very proud of it. I’ve always been a Guide since I was nine years old and I absolutely love the organisation and always have great fun,” Ms Atkinson said.

“Over the years I’ve followed my kids and whatever sport or activity they’ve done I’ve volunteered and also in the community. I really enjoy it.”

Ms Inness also received commendation for her dedication to local sporting clubs, including Broadford football, cricket and bowling clubs, with her dedication contributing significantly to the growth and vibrancy of the sporting community.

Ms Inness is also involved with Broadford and District Historical Society where she recently took the lead on two displays commemorating the 60th anniversary of Broadford Secondary College and 150th anniversary of Broadford Primary School.
