A team from Laurieton Men's Shed has received a state award for clocking up the kilometres in an effort to help residents at Queens Lake Village.
Ray Napper, Karl Herb and Jim Dyer accepted the award on behalf of the team at the recent NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards. The Mid North Coast regional ceremony was at Westport Club in Port Macquarie.
The Laurieton Men's Shed - Queens Lake Village Drivers' Team is made up of about 12 men who volunteer to drive or co-pilot the village bus.
The team drives the village bus on a regular basis to the Lakewood Shopping Centre on Mondays.
The is also another trip for residents into Laurieton on Fridays.
Every third week there is normally an outing on a Tuesday, which goes further afield to other regional towns or centres. Over the course of a year the team clocks up about 120 journeys.
