Australia Day Ambassador, Nick Gleeson presents David Dickson with a special certificate, watched by deputy Mayor, Catherine Egan and MC Tim Cox.

It was a result of his efforts at the Bingara Showground and numerous other gardens around town.

“David is a man who does not seek accolades or recognition, he just gets on with the job,” Gwydir Shire Deputy Mayor Catherine Egan said. “He has always had a spring in his step and a twinkle in his eye while giving his time and expertise freely. The work that David has done at the showground is invaluable and we at Council and the wider community thank him for that contribution.”

Mr Dickson was also described as a person who “always made time for others.”
