Local Recognised with Community Service Award


Michelle Barnes, President of Jordan Springs Netball Club, has been honoured with a Community Service Award at the 2022 Local Celebration Awards.

Jordan Springs has a netball club and it’s all thanks to the efforts of volunteer club President, Michelle Barnes.

Since 2016, Michelle has been the President of the Jordan Springs Netball Club and a passionate advocate for the club’s growth and success at Village Oval in Jordan Springs.

During its first year of operation, the club received an overwhelming response from the community with 11 teams registering to play in the Penrith District Netball Association Competition.

Since then, the club has continued to go from strength to strength and gain new members thanks to the tireless efforts of Michelle’s work and support from the local community – even through two chaotic seasons during the pandemic. Michelle is known to always lend a hand whether it be grant applications, coaching, registrations, fundraising, canteen, or tower duty.

Penrith is home to many dedicated, selfless, and inspirational people and Council’s Local Celebration Awards are an opportunity for them to recognise and celebrate these people in our community.

Nominations for the next Local Celebration Awards are now open and they want to hear from you! Visit Penrith City Council’s Local Celebration Awards web page at .
