Sandra Hetherington - Citizen of the Year

Sandra Hetherington
LACHLAN resident Sandra Hetherington is the Derwent Valley Council's Australia Day Citizen of the Year for 2011. The award was announced last Wednesday by mayor Martyn Evans and in her absence was accepted by Sandra's employer, Norske Skog Boyer general manager Rod Bender.

Sandra serves the community in a variety of ways, going well beyond her community liaison role at Norske Skog. She was instrumental in keeping the Friends of Frescati group alive through long years of negotiation leading to its official recognition by the council. She is also a supporter of the Friends of Lachlan River and an active member of Timber Communities Australia.

She organised easier access to St Peter's Church for frail and disabled people, and has much involvement with the St Brigid's School community.  Sandra is also a member of a public speaking group and was a significant member of New Norfolk's Bicentennial Committee and the organiser of a Back to Maydena day.

  1. Congratulations Sandra so very well deserved. I am so glad to see that you have been recognised. Thank you for all that you have done for the Penguin Club in particular the Brighton Group. I know the ladies at Brighton appreciate all that you have done for us
