Afternoon tea to celebrate Trevor Aspin’s 20+ years volunteering at Shoalhaven Heads Community Centre

Appreciation to Volunteer Trevor Aspin, Chairperson

Shoalhaven Heads Community Centre Management Committee

Great thanks to Trevor Aspin, Chairperson with Shoalhaven Heads Community Centre Management Committee.  For somewhere around 25 years, Trevor has been a tireless worker, and a dedicated and compassionate President at the Centre.  His very grateful Committee have sent us these words in thanks for everything he does:

… the confident way Trevor has of pushing ahead ways of upgrading the Hall and on Working Bees days, he is always a confident Squad Leader.


  … a compassionate and devoted President in Trevor.  He is a tireless worker for the Community Centre who always puts everyone else before himself. Trevor is always coming up with ideas to save money on things that need doing or fixing in the hall. Always willing to help, no matter what the situation. A true gentleman.


… a keen and devoted President … has never lost any interest in the duties that he has carried out ... carpentry skills … whatever the task Trevor was always there showing his skills. Any problems locking up after late night hirer's you could always rely on him to go and try and resolve the problem. He is a very easy going gentleman and relates in a most kind and courteous manner with the rest of his committee. Trevor's position surely would be a most difficult one to fill and to carry out the responsibilities in the manner which he has done.

Huskisson Remedial Works

Huskisson has been long overdue for an overhaul of its back-yard stormwater management.  After many storm events, flooding clean-ups and crisis management calls, a new retaining wall and storm water pipes were installed early this year.





Council is very grateful to the Huskisson Community Centre Management Committee who have been dedicated in their service to the community, and responded “above and beyond” over these previous years.
