City of Canterbury Bankstown Events and Community Experiences Officer, Richard Howard, has received Padstow Rotary’s 2020 Pride of Workmanship Award.
During a reception on Tuesday, Padstow Rotary president elect Tony Luck thanked Mr Howard for his ongoing support, and for going above and beyond to assist the club.
“This award was created to recognise local workers who show pride in the execution of their duties and are proud of their job, and Richard is a perfect example of that,” he said.
“As a member of Council’s events team, Richard has assisted Padstow Rotary on a number of occasions, especially at our barbecues at Council’s Australia Day pool parties and at our annual Playford Park carols.
“Even with all of the restrictions this year, Richard never hesitated to help us find alternatives. You are well deserving of this award, so we want to say thanks for everything you have done for the community.”
Mr Howard said it was always a pleasure to work with the club.
“It has been wonderful to work, as a team, with the Rotary,” he said.
“Thank you very much – I’ll always be more than happy to assist wherever I can.
“I actually enjoy the experience and I never knew I could get an award for something I enjoy doing so much.”
Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour also congratulated Mr Howard.
“It is not every day one of our hard-working staff is recognised for their service to the community,” Mayor Asfour said.
“A special congratulations to Richard for his achievement.
“But Richard is not alone. There are hundreds of staff just like him, who have dedicated their lives to helping make Canterbury-Bankstown and even greater place to live.
“To all of Council’s staff – thank you.”
