Roleybushcare took out the Qantas Landcare Innovative Community Group Award for our work maintaining and protecting jarrah bushland in our area. The event was hosted by His Excellency Mr Malcolm McCusker, AC CVO QC, Governor of Western Australia and Patron of Landcare Western Australia. This is a biennial event celebrating the achievements of Landcare by honouring groups and individuals from across the state.

Ian Colquhoun attended the ceremony at Government House to represent our Group as one of the three finalists in our section. There were 8 sections in the WA Landcare Awards. The winners go forward as finalists to the 2014 National Landcare Awards. Ian was presented with a certificate, $500 and a huge bottle of champers.

Everyone was then treated to an afternoon tea and then a special historical viewing of Government House.

Congratulations to all our volunteers who helped make this happen. You all help make our group so special.
