The Hubert Miller Perpetual Trophy was presented to Lesley Dalziel of Seymour during a presentation dinner at Trawool Resort last Friday.

Presented by Ben Hardman, Member for Seymour, the Award recognises excellence in community members who have demonstrated ability to engage with others for the long term sustainability of natural resources in their area.

Lesley was nominated for her untiring efforts in supporting environmental projects over many years and her driving force on the committee to establish the heritage values of Light Horse Park, in Seymour.

Introducing the award, Goulburn Broken CMA’s Bill O’Kane said that Lesley was a true reflection of community involvement with over 20 years of environmental commitment and raising awareness of environmental issues in the community.

“Real people involved in real community projects”, Mr O’Kane added.

The award is given by the Upper Goulburn Implementation Committee (UGIC) to honour Hubert Miller OAM, a Seymour farmer who devoted over 40 years on various committees and Boards for the protection of our rivers and who was a significant member of the UGIC until his retirement in 2002.

Lesley was presented with a certificate of appreciation and custody of the trophy for the next twelve months.
