Congratulations to Loani Tierney
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, today I acknowledge Loani Tierney, Mosman Council's Environment Education Officer who has been recognised by Local Government New South Wales at the Excellence in the Environment Awards 2020. She was awarded the Louise Petchell Memorial Award for Individual Sustainability. This award recognises individual achievement by a council officer or elected councillor in contributing to environmental improvement and sustainability. It was named in honour of Louise Petchell, Sustainability Manager at Penrith Council who passed away unexpectedly in 2009, and is awarded in memory of her pivotal success in many Excellence in Environment Awards. Held annually, the awards aim to recognise outstanding achievements by NSW councils in managing and protecting the environment. Locally here in North Shore we have a great community ethos to become more environmentally sustainable and we are conscious about how we treat the environment. We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the state and so it is encouraging to see our local councils engaged with environmental sustainability. Congratulations to Loani on receiving this award.
