Moyne Celebrates Community Heroes

As part of its Australia Day celebrations, the Moyne Shire Council has recognised those individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to their community, as part of their 2021 Australia Day Awards.

Elizabeth Moore, fondly known as ‘Bev’ has been recognised as the shire's Citizen Of The Year, with her commitment to her local community having had a lasting impact on many lives.

A Mother to nine children, 23 grandchildren and four great grandchildren, community involvement has been a core part of Mrs Moore’s life.

Mrs Moore helps with the annual Royal Children’s Hospital auction, helping to raise more than $11,000 each year for the appeal, while she is also a long-standing member of the Garvoc Cemetery Trust.

Mrs Moore has dedicated a significant amount of her own time and effort, delving into the archives to help identify the names of lost community members and reconstruct local history.
