Hansard session: Fifty-Eighth Parliament, First Session (58-1)
Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)
—Speaker, I believe my community is home to some of the hardest-working volunteers, not only in all of New South Wales but the whole of Australia. That is why it is my absolute privilege to host the St George Community Awards each and every year. For the last 13 years, I have been lucky enough to put the spotlight on hundreds and hundreds of individuals, community groups, and businesses within my community. Local churches, in particular, have always been an essential cornerstone of the St George area. Many local volunteers work tirelessly, week in and week out, to provide for their parish and the local community. That's why I would like to recognise Jimmy Chew, a Welcoming Team Leader at St George's Hurstville Anglican Church. Serving on the parish council and having been previously appointed as the acting warden of the church, Jimmy has contributed a great deal of time and effort to support his community. Once again, I would like to thank Jimmy for all his efforts over the years. I know he will continue to serve his church community well into the future.
