Coffs senior wins local achievement award

A Coffs Coast senior has been recognised for her valuable contributions to the community, receiving a Seniors Local Achievement Award as part of the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival.

Member for Coffs Harbour, Gurmesh Singh presented Phyllis Taylor with her award in recognition of her extensive community service.

“I congratulate Phyllis for helping to make our region a diverse, active and inspirational place to live – thank you for your generous and remarkable contributions to our community,” Mr Singh said.

“Phyllis has been a long-time advocate for seniors on the Coffs Coast, most particularly to inspire and encourage them to step out of their comfort zones and enjoy new experiences.

“She has volunteered her time for many organisations including Radio CHYFM, the Salvation Army Family Store, the Coffs Harbour Table Tennis Club, the Coffs Seniors Computer Club and at Coffs Harbour Health Campus, where she drives the courtesy buggy.”

The 2024 NSW Seniors Festival, which ran from 11–24 March, enables older people to engage with each other, their community, and services.
