MEDIA RELEASE - Giving thanks for our grandparents

Grandparents are the smiling faces of their grandchildren’s lives and a set of helping hands for their parents, and the Local Grandparent of the Year Awards are a wonderful way to say a big thank you.

I will be honouring Local Grandparents of the Year with commemorative certificates and putting our most inspirational nominees forward to be considered for a NSW Grandparent of the Year Award.

I am writing to invite you to nominate Maitland grandparents who are deserving of our gratitude and appreciation.

Please email me at or call my office on 4933 1617 to make your nomination.

Please tell me:

• Your full name

• Your address

• Your telephone number:

• Grandparent nominee’s full name

• Grandparent nominee’s address

• Why you think they are deserving of an award.

I will announce our local winners ahead of Grandparents Day on 25 October, 2020 so please ensure you send me your nomination as soon as possible.

I look forward to your nominations and thank you for your help ensuring our most cherished grandparents know just how much they are loved and appreciated.
