Stan Henwood Award winner announced

Published: 22 May 2023

Cardinia Shire Council announced this year’s 2023 Stan Henwood Award recipient at the annual volunteer reception at Cardinia Cultural Centre last Thursday night.

This event is an opportunity to celebrate with our local volunteers and formally acknowledge their contributions to our community for National Volunteer Week (15 – 21 May). 

The Stan Henwood Award honours lifetime achievements in community service and volunteering. This year, it was awarded to Jeffrey Latter. 

Jeffrey is a committed, consistent and courteous member of every organisation to which he belongs. He is not only an accomplished group leader, he also exercises significant influence on committees. He brings his broad knowledge and skills to the table, representing his views with clarity and grace. Jeffrey is amenable and persistent: qualities that result in some of his achievements taking many years to accomplish. 

Jeffrey has been a founder and key contributor to many environment, conservation and land care groups and initiatives. He has also contributed greatly to Scouts and has received a number of awards in recognition for his community work. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor, Councillor Tammy Radford, congratulated Jeff and thanked the shire’s many volunteers for their ongoing efforts. 

“We warmly thank Jeff for his continuous dedication and commitment to our local community. The significant contributions Jeff has made to the shire make him a well-deserving recipient of the 2023 Stan Henwood Award,” Councillor Radford said. 

“I would also like to formally show my appreciation to all award nominees and our amazing local volunteers. Your efforts do not go unnoticed and are a major part of what makes Cardinia Shire the wonderful place it is.”
