Local legends, it’s awards season in Murray Bridge – nominate now
The Rural City of Murray Bridge is calling for entries in its spring garden competition, sports awards, Christmas lights competition and Australia Day awards.
This sponsored post is brought to you by the Rural City of Murray Bridge.
Nominate a local legend doing great things in the community, in one of four award categories designed to honour outstanding achievements and celebrate community pride.
Murray Bridge Mayor Brenton Lewis said the council’s Local Legends campaign pulled together four separate awards to celebrate local successes: the Spring Garden Competition, Sports Awards, Christmas Lights Competition and Australia Day Awards.
“Our community is full of exceptional people, doing amazing things,” he said.
“Chances are you know one – be a legend and nominate a local legend for an award today, or encourage them to enter one of the competitions.
“It’s a perfect opportunity to recognise local legends, build community pride, celebrate success and showcase what a great place the Rural City of Murray Bridge is to live, work, play, visit and invest.”
