Service recognised with life membership
Mr Geoff Melville's 16 years of service as a director of an aged care facility has been recognised with life membership.
Among Mr Melville's contribution to Peninsula Villages has been his role as chair of its building committee responsible for the development of another 114 beds at the facility.
Earlier this year, the committee awarded a $30M contract to build the extension.
Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said: "Geoff has provided Peninsula Villages and the local community with tremendous service and commitment for many years, something he does unconditionally and without seeking any personal gratification."
He said Mr Melville had extensive knowledge of the property market and had been a key facilitator as Peninsula Villages strategically advanced its landholdings.
Mr Melville had also been an active member of the Rotary Club of Umina, Empire Bay Progress Association, Empire Bay Public School Parents and Carers Association and a variety of local Probus Clubs.
The life membership is the second time this year that Mr Melville's work in the community has been recognised.
In March, he was presented with the NSW Government's Local Achievement Award for a lifetime of services to the community.
