The Beaudesert Times is taking nominations for The Beaudesert Times Local Legends for 2020.

The Beaudesert Times is passionate about acknowledging our Local Legends who love being involved in our community and who generously contribute their time for the greater good of our town.

It takes only five minutes to nominate a Local Legend, simply click on the link below.

Your Local Legend could be a local volunteer, a local health care worker or the parent running the sausage sizzle at your sporting club, or any other volunteer.

Without the help of our volunteers, our clubs and events and community organisations could not operate smoothly.

Your nomination could win you a prize package valued at $275 from local businesses Mitre 10, Greener Grocer, The Star Hotel and Bendigo Bank,

A selection of nominations will be published in our Local Legends special publications and uploaded on The Beaudesert Times website.

Each nomination will also receive a Local Legend certificate presented by The Beaudesert Times.

Local legends are people like Beaudesert Aboriginal artist Kim Williams who lost her job as a result of COVID-19 restrictions in March but did not even pause to worry about what might happen next.

Instead, Ms Williams started painting light poles as a way to bring some cheer to her neighbourhood, including Anzac themed poles outside the homes of local veterans who were prevented this year from taking their rightful place in the annual Anzac march through town.

Make sure you keep up to date by following The Beaudesert Times on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
