Community service awards

Mayor Dan Plato’s office hosted a virtual awards ceremony acknowledging the community service work of individuals, groups and organisations in 12 categories in each of the City’s 24 sub-councils on Tuesday June 29 (“City honours the Plain’s community workers”, Plainsman, July 7).

Among the recipients from the Wolfgat Sub-Council and Sub-Council 23 were New Lentegeur-based House of Restoration and Carol Mentor, from Beacon Valley, who received a Community Hero of the Year award – and not a bravery award as reported last week.

Elton Jansen, councillor for Strandfontein and chairman of Subcouncil 23, Geraldine Clayton, House of Restoration project manager, Goawa Timm, councillor for Lentegeur, and Sebastian Clayton, House of Restoration chairman.
Carol Mentor, from Beacon Valley, received a Community Hero of the Year award.
