Nepalese Penshurst Community

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—I acknowledge the continued commitment of the Nepalese Penshurst Community. Led by Laxman Shrestha, the Nepalese Penshurst Community do an outstanding job of connecting local Nepalese people. The Nepalese Penshurst Community is one of the most welcoming organisations I have come across. They host so many memorable events that are always fun and inclusive. Recently, I had the honour of acknowledging some of their members with Individual Achievement Awards as part of the 2020 St George Community Awards. These awards recognise some of the many men and women from across the St George area who go above and beyond each and every day to make our community even better. Recipients from the Nepalese Penshurst Community include: Enos Newar, Dinesh Kathayat, Laxman Shrestha and Sabi Singh Maharjan. These are all outstanding individuals who are always a pleasure to deal with and I applaud their advocacy and support for Nepalese people and Nepalese culture across the St George area. I wish you all the best for the year ahead.
