Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is encouraging the community to nominate rural women volunteers to be honoured on the 2016 NSW Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.


“Rural women play an important role in our region demonstrating a passion and commitment that makes a difference to the lives of people in our community,” Mr Anderson said.


“It is important to recognise and appreciate the valuable and diverse roles that rural women shoulder to support our community.


“I encourage anyone who knows of a valued female volunteer in our community to recognise their contribution by nominating them to be included on the 2016 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.


“Last year five local women made the honour roll which really goes to show the calibre of people we have in our community and I am confident we’ll see plenty of nominations again this year.”


All rural women nominated will be included in the 2016 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll, which will be launched at the annual NSW Rural Women’s Gathering being hosted by women from Broken Hill on 28-30 October 2016.


To nominate a Hidden Treasures volunteer, you can complete your nomination online ( or download a nomination form and share a few paragraphs about why your nominee is worthy.
