Sheed highlights Numurkah Community in Parliament

June 24, 2015

 

Independent Member for Shepparton District Suzanna Sheed today highlighted the great work of the Numurkah community in parliament.

The Minister for Health officially opened the new Numurkah District Health Service and neighbouring Numurkah Ambulance Branch in front of more than 100 local residents last week.

Ms Sheed said it was a wonderful occasion that deserved recognition.

“The Numurkah community raised more than $200,000 to help with the rebuild, a huge achievement for a small town and I would like to congratulate them,” Ms Sheed said.

 

 

“I would also like to congratulate chief executive officer Jacque Phillips for her strong leadership.

“Jacque led the emergency and recovery process and advocated strongly for the rebuilding of the hospital.

“Her hard work was recognised earlier this year when she was awarded an Order of Australia Medal.

“Another Numurkah woman, Sue Aldridge, was also recently awarded an Order of Australia Medal for her service to the community.

“Ms Aldridge’s involvement with the region began with Numurkah Pony Club, which she helped found in 1964. She has been an active community representative and also served on local council and with the Numurkah Agricultural & Pastoral Society.

“These women exemplify the powerful community spirit of Numurkah, and I congratulate them both.”
